About this Cook
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...)

Cream Wafers
This has been a Christmas favorite for many years. Make sure the dough is chilled. I roll out 1/3 of the dough at a time. I use a plastic medicine cup for a cookie cutter. These cookies are VERY breakable, and will stick to your pan. Spray your cookie sheet with Pam first, let them cool slightly, and they will come off easily. I make them without the egg yolk.

Best Formula Three-Cheese Fondue
Wonderful and easy to boot! We dipped broccoli, apples, and home made bread (Artisan bread in 20 min a day basic recipe) It was a nice change form our regular Swiss fondue

Father-in-Law's Scallops with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Bacon
Hubby made this for dinner tonight. Was really good, but he didn't read the reviews so there was not enough sauce. We added some baby bella mushrooms. I will use the precooked bacon bits that we get in a big bag from Costco next time, and double the sauce. This recipe is a keeper, just needs a few tweaks
