I am a mother to 5 children and I work at a family camp in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. My husband and I have been married for 16 years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with recipes, tweaking and changing to suit my family's ever changing tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our annual Christmas carolling party is the one we all love to prepare for. We invite people to go with us to the local nursing home and low income housing developments. We head back to our home for appetizers and goodies. Preparing for this party, with food and decorations is a highlight for our entire family.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook was a huge challenge. I did not know how to cook when I met my husband, he taught me. Though the poor man had quite a few "experiments" that he lived through. I have now surpassed those days and love to play in the kitchen!
My cooking tragedies
One of the first meals I tried to make was a recipe I had found for an ocean perch italiano. It was horrible, my dear husband ate it....but I fixed a sandwich as the taste was so bad....I could not stomach it. He was a real trooper and ate the whole thing saying...it wasn't "too bad".
