About this Cook
As the oldest girl in a family of 6 children I spent a fair amount of time helping my mother in the kitchen. I love to experiment and rarely follow a recipe completely. I try to bring a different dish to every family gathering. Baking is not my forte, but I try!(I think it's the following the recipe thing)
My favorite things to cook
Anything challenging. I really enjoy trying new herb/spice combinations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My background is Norwegian/Russian. I make lefse (Norwegian potato flat bread)and Vereneky (Russian potato dumplings)every year with my sisters. We have a great time together.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese
As recommended by another reviewer I blanched the stems for a few minutes first, then followed recipe as written. Very Good Dish.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
