About this Cook
I'm a Montana transplant to Minnesota. Life is good here! I have a beautiful house very close to the lake, two beautiful dogs, and as of November, a husband! I'm working on graduate school, so life has been hectic to say the least. I don't always find time to cook, but when I do, I'm usually glad that I did. I am resolved to cook more now that I am finished with my teaching license. Now if only I could find a job :) ...
My favorite things to cook
I tolerate cooking, but I LOVE to bake. Cookies, cakes, bars, muffins, brownies. Baking is my vice, and unfortunately most of the stuff I love to bake is also unhealthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking has always been very seasonal in my family. I can't think of anything that we eat year round. Here are my favorites: Fall: anything with apples, and chicken and dumplings Winter: lefse and fruit soup Spring: anything with rhubarb Summer: anything with berries, grilling every night, gorgeous fresh salads
My cooking triumphs
I tend to fixate on the tragedies :) I wouldn't be a proper scandinavian if I didn't.
My cooking tragedies
I have so many...where to begin? I have a tendency toward kitchen mishaps whenever people are coming to my house. There's the time I baked cupcakes in a disposable pan still wrapped in plastic (what a mess!) or the time I sliced the tip of my finger off just minutes before my in-laws were coming for dinner. I've come to expect this sort of thing :)

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
So good! This has become a favorite in our house. I make double batches and freeze some to have for a quick and easy meal.

Creamy Pheasant and Noodle
This is a solid pheasant recipe. I will definitely make it again, since I have lots of pheasants to use up : )

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes
I made these for a party and they were a hit. I put frosting on some, but I honestly liked them better without.
