I hove loved to cook since I was a child. My father was a chef and he let me help in the kitchen. Now that it is just my husband and I at home I still enjoy preparing meals and entertaing friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I am known as the "Pie Baker" to my friends. I also like to bake bread, muffins. Guess it's dificult to identify my favorite things to cook as I seem to enjoy most all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family remembers my goulash (not my favorite to eat) as being a family favorite. Also they often ask for my meatloaf. Grown kids and grandchildren aren't much on sweets to they do not ask for my pies :)
My cooking triumphs
I am of Scandanavian decent and love making Kranse Kage which is a almond like cake that is baked in rings and stacked. I made two for one daughters wedding and have made several for gifts.
My cooking tragedies
My first pie crust - tried when I was first married 49 yrs. ago. Also forgot to put yeast in my first bread try.
