About this Cook
I love to cook and bake- I have loved it since I was a child! I now have three young children of my own, and I often dream about taking a professional cooking course someday; perhaps when I have more time to pursue my dreams. For now, I learn tips and tricks from the Internet, as well as from a variety of cooking shows on the Food channel. I LOVE cooking shows! I really enjoy the creativity and the gratification that comes with cooking; it is a wonderful creative outlet, and you have a finished product within a few minutes to a few hours! I believe in delicious homemade food made with high-quality fresh ingredients and of course, with lots of love! I think cooking a delicious, homemade, meal for someone is one of the greatest gifts you can give.
My favorite things to cook
I can't think of a single thing I don't love to cook. I love making homemade soups and bisques. I love to cook roasts, chicken, potatoes, salads, steaks, enchiladas, pasta, ribs, shepherd's pie, Salmon, and Thai food. I love to make homemade ice cream. My children LOVE pancakes - so I make crepes, buttermilk pancakes, and also belgian waffles and they go CRAZY with excitement - so of course I love it too! Really, if I know my family will love it, then I enjoy making it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad has perfected Norwegian Potato Lefse, and he has passed his recipe and knowledge on to me. He makes it every Christmas, and I am going to try to start making it also.
My cooking triumphs
Christmas dinner. I make roast turkey with homemade stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, homemade cranberry sauce, broccoli salad, homemade sweet rolls, butternut squash bisque, pie - the works!
My cooking tragedies
As a young woman with no children, I once tried putting my favorite peanut-chicken type dish in a crock pot to bring to my work for our 'potluck', because I wanted to share how delicious it was with others. Well, it obviously wasn't meant to be kept warm all morning because when lunchtime came it was really really terrible. Horrible, in fact. I was mortified and embarrassed at how foolish it was of me to bring this dish in a crock-pot!! It was barely touched!! Lesson learned!!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies
These are the best brownies I've ever tasted in my life, hands down. My husband and kids said the same but I was in utter amazement at how delicious they are. Next time I'll bake for 25 minutes instead of 20, but they were still absolutely DELICIOUS. I am not usually a big fan of brownies, but I will be making these again and again. Easily 5 stars.

Easy Granola Bars
These are delicious! I line the 9x13 pan with parchment paper so some is hanging over the sides. Then I take another piece of parchment paper and place it on top of the granola once I've dumped it into the pan. I use my meat pounder (flat side) and pound it and smooth it all over the top of the parchement paper so the granola underneath gets nice and flat and pushed into the edges of the pan. Once they're done baking, I pull it out of the pan with the parchment paper and l cut it into bars with my pizza cutter. Perfect!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
This is THE BEST chocolate cake recipe. Everyone raves about it, and it's SO simple! I made cupcakes with it, and baked them @325 for 15 minutes. I will not use another chocolate cake recipe, this one is "it" for me.
