I used to be a nurse but now I am a stay at home mom to 3 girls and a proud Navy wife.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking anything and everything. I'm trying to learn to cook healthier and am trying to cook new types of food. The Navy has sent us to VA so I'm trying to learn southern.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm Norwegian and we bake lots of krumkake, rosettes, and lefse around the holidays. My girls and I do a HUGE Christmas cookie bake every year! Also, on birthdays, everyone picks their favorite cake to have.
My cooking triumphs
Cream puffs, a zucchini bundt cake, chicken enchiladas, lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cake for my daughter's 1st birthday that was baked in 2 half circle pans, so it was a sphere when put together. It was a circus ball. I covered it in fondant and painstakingly made tiny marzipan circus animals.. including an elephant with a ball on it's trunk for the top. It looked perfect... and was easily the most disgusting cake I've ever tasted. I couldn't even eat it. Awful.
