Mother of 4 grown children.
Likes to experience different cultures
My favorite things to cook
Ethnic! I like traveling and food is part of it.
My husband is definitely a "meat and potatoes" man and does not like "foo-foo" food as he calls it. Also with my small town and rural lifestyle find that my usual cooking is "comfort"/farm foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make the traditional Thanksgiving meal! Traditions are important!
Mother is Sweedish and grew up in a Sweedish community, but in the middle of the country there has been NO seafood influence what-so-ever!
My cooking triumphs
Making a Nepalese dinner for an exchange student from Katmandu and him swearing that it was exactly like he gets "back home" and around katmandu!
My cooking tragedies
The wedding cake I made for my sister's wedding when my oven decided to act up AND then having to transport the different layers and equipment an hour and a half drive WITH a fussy baby in the back seat that needed her diaper changed AND getting a speeding ticket AND trying to finish decorating and putting the finishing touches on the cake while my sister was saying her vows! Learned my lesson after that!!
