My favorite things to cook
Anything that calls for potatoes! :)
No, seriously, flavorful all-in-one dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma's pickled salmon! (Grandpa was a gillnetter and we grew up eating fish, fixed correctly!)
My cooking triumphs
A simple roasted winter vegetable dish I fixed for Thanksgiving many many years ago. Now I can't find the recipe. :(
My cooking tragedies
Using granulated instead of powdered sugar when making frosting. But I was only 12 and cooking with my best friend Cindy. We were making a cake for the first time. We laughed all the time and obviously weren't paying attention!
