About this Cook
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.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking powder biscuits, tuna mac salad, volcano casserole, divinity & sandbakkels & krumkake (Christmas), pumpkin pie (Thanksgiving),

Banana Sour Cream Bread
Beware cooking temps & times! I didn't read reviews and almost ended up with gooey bread. I had baked two loaves at 300F for an hour. Reading the reviews after the hour was up because the bread was still wet in the middle, I increased the temperature to 350F for 15 minutes and covered the tops of the bread with aluminum foil to prevent burning. It turned out delicious. Good luck!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies III
The rich peanut butter of the cookies melts into the softer, subtle sweetness of the peanut butter cream filling. So good! Even better the next day. I'm not a peanut butter cookie fan. I made them for my husband, but I probably ate more than he did! Yum!

We (embarrasingly) ate two loaves of this in one night! Beware: It's completely addicting.
