I started cooking and baking when I was 12. I find experimenting in the kitchen is a great way to relax. I browse recipes to get ideas and modify them to what I have on hand in the kitchen without having to run out to get something special.
My favorite things to cook
Holiday baking is my favorite time of the year. I have been known to make a minimum of 10 to 15 different kinds of fudge and upwards of 20+ kinds of cookies. I am always looking for new holiday recipes to try.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is of Norwegian heritage and I have taken it upon myself to become well versed on our family recipes in my generation.
My cooking triumphs
Taking on some of the family recipes for the holidays has been a big thing for me. To have my grandma say that mine are as good as what she makes is a huge compliment!!
My cooking tragedies
Who wants to dwell on these, nothing is a tragedy since we learn from every endeavor!!
