About this Cook
I help out in our family business (Pennsylvania Blue Stone Mining} so I don't get to cook and bake as much as I would like to.This year I'm really into baking bread.I do like to eat healthy but I have a sweet tooth as well.My daughter is a vegetarian so I like to cook with her in mind as well.I have two granddaughters 12 and 9 months so I bake with them too..I am Slovic and my husbands family is from Norway. Thats alot of traditionall cooking thrown in. My other hobbies are Mosaics, gardening, yoga,aromatherapy and my love for all things natural.
My favorite things to cook
Bread, cheesecake, soups, chiles, fudge and Christmas cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pigs in a blanket, Fish soup for Christmas Eve, Krumkkake (Christmas cookie from Norway)
My cooking triumphs
Potatoe salad as good as my mother-in-laws. Homemade bread and pigs-in-a-blanket as good as my moms and dads
My cooking tragedies
I forgot the hard boiled eggs on the stove. To many to mention!

Jalapeno Jelly
This is everything I was hoping for in a pepper jelly and more.We use to get a jar at Christmas time from a Company our family business deals with and we always raved about it.Well now I can make my own.It is awesome with cream cheese on crackers.Guess what Im giving everybody for Christmas?Oh I made it just as the recipe says, no tweaking needed.
