About this Cook
I am happily married and a mother of 2 wonderful little children, a boy and a girl. I am a stay at home mom so I love to make the day interesting by baking with my 2 year old, although she loves to help and it can make for a not-so-great outcome sometimes. If you bake then you know every ingredient has to be precise, and well, she likes to taste what her momma's cooking! Only sometimes though because I am very adament about being healthy and that means minimal sugar, I usually try to substitute sugar with honey or fruit juice if at all possible. Well thats just a little about me, hope you found it amusing.
My favorite things to cook
Gotta say, I love to bake more than anything. Cake. haha I love to experiment with everything though and cooking really is fun when you can grab a handful of ingredients from the cupboard and whip up something crazy
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition we carry in the family is lefse. It's a norwegian flatbread made out of potatoes. Sccrrruummpttious :)
My cooking triumphs
I've had many successes in the kitchen. I've tried pretty much everything but pastries, like danishes, I would love to learn how to do that!
My cooking tragedies
The only tragedy in my kitchen is when a cake comes out dry.

Burger or Hot Dog Buns
this recipe really isn't that great. First of all, the directions are wrong, it states that you should heat the liquids until very hot and that is false. the liquids should only be heated until lukewarm or else it will kill the yeast right away. Next, it needs more rising time. An additional hour before you shape them into balls is a good idea. Against my better judgement I made this following the instructions, I guess that's what happens when it's hot out and I try to cook.

Dark Chocolate Cake I
Very good indeed, I substituted probably 3/4 cup boiling water with hot coffee and it turned into an intensely dark, chocolate, coffee flavored cake! I used a caramel frosting and topped it off with ganache. Great recipe.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies
wonderful! If you love pumpkin then you'll love these. I basically doubled all the spices and it was great, for my taste anyway. Good recipe, I'll be making these more often
