I cook to express myself creativly, to fill a niche in people's lives with beautiful food, to remember my childhood and celebrate the future. I keep all the TV's in my house tuned to the Food Network and adore Emril Lagasse. All of my friends and family recieve a home baked cake of their choice on their birthday's. A way of starting a new food tradition in light of the old.
My favorite things to cook
Any baked goods. Anything vegetarian or with fish and especially sweet treats! I love challenging myself with gourmet recipies and coming up with unique recipies and new methods for cake decorating and building.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am the torch bearer of lefse making in my family. My grandmother taught me as a child and no one makes it more tender or thinner. I learned from the best!
My cooking triumphs
My birthday cakes are always a challenge, I love the reward of a beautiful and delicious cake.
My cooking tragedies
sugar free merinques - just forget about it!!!
