I'm a west coast transplant. I grew up in the Midwest with the typical meat and potato family (cheap & delicious). My mom taught me pretty much everything I know about cooking. Things I remember eating when I was little include: bread & milk (as a cereal), lots of oatmeal, volcano casserole, lefse, and haystack cookies.
My favorite things to cook
I'm much more of a baker. Some of my favorite dishes include tuna mac salad, spaghetti al fredo, meatloaf, and baking powder biscuits.
