I work as a Newborn ICU nurse in Albuquerque. After 13-14 hour day, I love to come home to a home cooked meal made by my husband who will grill anything! We both love to make ethnic foods. I enjoy baking. We eat a lot of once a month cooking meals- it works great with our schedule, and it saves a lot of money and even more time!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make "comfort" foods- things that remind me of what I ate growing up in Minnesota. My friends favorite things for me to make are the King cakes that I make and share. (NICU Nurses really like the baby part...) My dog loves home made doggy treats-- I'll be teaching a class on that this fall at church!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish food for Christmas, and wild rice stuffing with our Thanksgiving turkey...
My cooking triumphs
Any time there are no leftovers...
My cooking tragedies
My first layer cake ever at age 10. I learned the hard way why it is important to let your cake cool before frosting it. (The dog ate the entire top layer after it slid off and onto the floor...)
