I live in Alaska and travel around the South Central and Interior quite a bit. I love to be by the ocean and see whales. Beluga's are my absolute favorite. I feel a little sad when I'm not by the water. I enjoy living here and am glad to call it home. Born and raised in AK.!
My favorite things to cook
Bread and soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A little mix of Alaskan, Minnesotan, and Upper New York cooking traditions with roots from around the world. Some of our favorites are Speedies, 3 can chili, cast iron cooking, cheesy broccoli, casserole, bread, and lots of stew. My husband is trying to convert me to his North Carolina ways but we'll see.
My cooking triumphs
Train cake, brownies, cookies, tortilla soup and bread. I also make excellent french toast and turkey pot pie.
My husband says I make good toast and don't burn boiled water. =)
My cooking tragedies
Curry pumpkin soup. But actually it wasn't bad, I just am not a big fan of curry.
