About this Cook
My parents are Missionaries who have traveled the world and lived in many states, so I've tried a wide variety of food traditions. I also got a lot of practice in the kitchen while I was a cook at a camp for a few years. I grew up a hunter/farmer, but after a trip to Africa in 2006 I became a strong Vegetarian and it's been nothing but wonderful.
My favorite things to cook
I substitute any meat ingrediends with Boca or Morning Star brands.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandmother came straight from Norway and brought back a handful of recipes that the whole family prepares each holiday. I get really excited about lefse, rice pudding, krumkake, marzipan, kringla and crepes suzettes!
My cooking triumphs
After a trip to Istanbul, I wanted to see if I could make Turkish Delights.. And it was a taste of heaven.

Restaurant-Style Potato Salad
The 5 stars is due to this: I followed reviewers advice and added 5 boiled eggs as well as omitted pimentos and carrots and used celery salt in place of minced celery. Absolutely to die for!

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches
This was so good when made just as the recipe is written, but I also love that it leaves room to experiment if I feel like it. Love it!

Banana Crumb Muffins
PERFECT!!!!! I used reviewers recommendations and used oil in place of butter, added some Vanilla and more cinnamon. I'll probably never make Banana Bread again. This is FAR BETTER.
