My favorite things to cook
I love to cook for groups (growing up in a family of 7 will do that for ya) So when potluck time comes around for work - I am in my element. I just love cooking in the Crockpot for these days... so that when lunch time comes around I have something freshly cooked to offer :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Dad's from a small town in Wisconsin called New Glarus, settled by Swiss immigrants. Every Christmas we would mixup a big batch of Bräzeli batter and take turns with the iron press. I can't wait until I have children of my own so I can carry on the tradition.
Recently I've been looking for a Bräzeli cooking iron of my own. The traditional swiss one that I have grown up, with is now costing about $350 for a new one! So instead I'm going for a simular german/norwegian cookie 'Krumkake' iron that I can get at Target for about $50.
My cooking tragedies
My worst tragedy so far was when I was 8-10yrs old and I mixed up the measurements for the sugar and salt for a Strawberry Shortcake. The cake was inedible but we made due with the frosting and strawberries on top!
My most recent tragedy was trying to make Herbed Foccacia Bread. I did three batches and the last one burnt to the pan so bad I had to throw it out - pan and all!
