I love to try new recipes. Cooking for people brings out the best in me. Nothing beats the smile people get on their faces when they eat your food!
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, muffins, bread, French Silk Pie, pasta, anything! I LOVE to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family didn't really have any, but my husband's did, and I love being a part of them now! Lefse, Struddle, Fleischkuechle...YUM!
My cooking triumphs
Teaching myself how to bake bread and rolls and other yeast doughs...and I'm pretty darn good at it!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever used the oven on my own I was baking a frozen pizza. I burned myself on the pan and dropped the entire thing in the oven for my mom to have to clean up later!
First loaf of bread was a flop! Rock hard...gross. Ick! And I followed the directions to a T. Now I don't do that anymore. I'm a bread whiz!
