Cute cake.
A cute little cake my daughter helped make.
About this Cook
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!

Candy Coated Pecans
I added 1 tbsp cinnamon, 1 tsp salt, and used 1/2c white and 1/2c brown sugar, and half the pecans, laid on wax paper with cooking spray, cooked 45 min at 300 degrees, stirring every 15 min. Turned out crispy and wonderful.

Country-Style Steak
Fabulous! I substituted french onion soup and chicken broth, instead of beef broth. Cut away all fat and gristle and it was fantastic. Poured over rice is a fabulous beef tip type recipe. My husband ran out and bought more french onion soup so I could make another the next day!
