Mother of two dogs, wife of one amazing husband, and teacher of wild and crazy children.
My favorite things to cook
I have an obsession with my immersion blender - I use it for just about everything. I try to get at 2 servings of vegetables in every meal and think that tropical fruits (pinapples, mangos) are the bees knees. I'm not a great baker, have a hard time following instructions, and cook from my gut.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother makes an amazing red lentil soup, and every Christmas morning she makes a traditional swedish pastry. My father's grilled salmon in the summer is to die for, and my mother in law has the best potato salad.
My cooking triumphs
Poaching eggs! I thought it would be so much harder.
Also, getting my picky husband to really enjoy healthy foods.
My cooking tragedies
A mousse that was more like a liquid disaster. It tasted delicious, if you're into eating cold chocolate soup.
