About this Cook
Originally from a very small town in rural Nebraska, I now live in Lincoln, Nebraska. I am married and am a graduate student at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
My favorite things to cook
I am an eclectic cook, and I really like to try new things. I'm always looking for ways to make my existing favorites healthier. I also am trying to find recipes that my husband likes that may become favorites for our family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of excellent cooks; both of my grandmothers can really bake, and one of my grandmothers is a superb candy maker. My mother is in a class all of her own; her cooking skills are heralded in our family. I know I'll never live up to the standard she has set, but I'm trying to blaze my own trail of tasty (and sometimes healthy) recipes!
My cooking triumphs
I recently mastered my grandmother's banana drop cookies-- they tasted just like hers!
My cooking tragedies
Oh, too many to recall here...when I was 12, I got my long hair caught in a kitchen mixer as my mother was making frosting. That's probably the worst one.

Pumpkin Pancakes
I didn't think these were as fluffy as I expected them to be based on others' replies, but it could be "user error" on my part, too! Really great flavor and freeze well.
