I am a mother of four, ages 14-25, am married and live in Central Wisconsin. I enjoy cooking especially if it is something that is short on prep time and long on flavor!
My favorite things to cook
See my recipe Favorite Sunday Brunch and Bacon Wrapped Baby Corn and Chestnuts. The latter recipe is one I just invented and it is unbelievably delicious, but SO simple! Young and old alike love them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Too many to list here. We are a combined family. I am Swedish and my husband is Polish so we have some interesting meals, always delicious. My husband cooks too and we often have cookoffs. He beat my scalloped potatoes, I beat his Pork Fried Rice.
My cooking triumphs
I think my best invention thus far is my Bacon Wrapped Baby Corn and Water Chestnut appetizer. I've made some other incredible recipes but can never duplicate them because I didn't write down the recipe.
My cooking tragedies
There have been many, but I have not included them here, for obvious reasons! Once I didn't have sour cream and substituted vanilla yogurt in my early years. That was a huge disaster. Inedible!
