About this Cook
My husband and I have served as Evangelical missionaries in Spain for twelve years. After spending a fantastic year directing an international volunteer program in Toronto, Canada, we have recently relocated to Greenville, South Carolina. After 22 moves in 28 years I call no place my hometown. My roots are in Jesus Christ.
My favorite things to cook
I love Spanish food! Real Spanish, not Mexican, not Tex-Mex, but Spanish! I make a great paella, and my Tortilla EspaƱola almost always has 'muy buena pinta'.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have picked up a lot of Spanish cooking traditions. But, Christmas Eve is always Norwegian Meatballs in Gravy with Lignonberries, mashed potatoes, and peas. I picked up recipes from my Norwegian aunt while growing up.
My cooking triumphs
In December 2003 I won an all-village baking contest in Spain for a Raspberry Cheesecake Brownie Pie!
My cooking tragedies
We once had friends over for dinner, and I mis-read a recipe for stuffed pork chops. They waited an extra hour before I was able to serve them! But at least it turned out!

Healthier Oven Roasted Potatoes
Love this recipe! I have an herb garden on my back porch, and was so happy to find a recipe that uses so many delicious fresh herbs! I added sage to the mix. My family love this, and I'm sure I'll make it this way again.

Butternut Squash and Pecan Casserole
My husband and I both love this recipe. The mayo and onion make it different from the typical sweet squash casseroles, aand give it a velvety texture as well. I'm making it for the third time tonight.

Best Turkey Meatloaf
I love this recipe! I made it for the second time last night. My husband loves it too! It will now be my go-to recipe for turkey loaf. The sweet glaze makes it just right. One can also add extra herbs and spices to taste. But the recipe on its own is terrific!
