I'm a nurse. I'm mostly Norwegian, but have yet to learn how to make lefsa and krumkakas.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies; Soups; Cheesecakes; Brown sugar pork chops
My favorite family cooking traditions
Apple pie, chili, lefsa
My cooking triumphs
The perfect chocolate chip cookie; Pastry wrapped brie; chicken and dumpling soup
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate chip cookies with twice as much baking soda; they overflowed on the pan when I was 12. I have since perfected my chocolate chip cookie making skills.
