I love to bake, and make candy.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, fresh ingredients quickly and simply combined to form incredible taste combinations, BBQ chevon ribs, and I am absolutely OBSESSED with shrimp and grits these days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lefse, Krumkake, Honey Lebkuchen, German potato salad, Light & Fluffy Southern Biscuits
My cooking triumphs
Professionally, teaching kids to make veggie omelets, fruit & yogurt parfaits, chicken quesadillas, baked french fries made from whole potatoes, broccoli salad, baked crispy nuggets made from chicken breast, fresh salads, easy lasagna florentine and more. Their excitement and growing confidence in themselves is awesome!
Personally: Simple Spinach-Romaine Salad with hot turkey bacon, onion, date, balsamic vinaigrette dressing garnished with slivered Almonds.
Roast Pork Loin with Cranberry Mustard Glaze,
4 layer Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake with IMBC Frosting for Dad's 70th birthday
My cooking tragedies
Caramel Jello Cake (think Jello cake gone far, far awry!)
The first month's meals I served my husband 25 years ago when we first wed.
