About this Cook
I'm married to my best friend & the mother of two grown sons, one of whom lives in New Orleans, where we love to visit. I have always appreciated good food. My mother and aunts were excellent cooks, and I try to emulate them.
My favorite things to cook
Things my husband & I can make together: brunches, weekend suppers, summertime grilling, entertaining. I love to make a pretty presentation.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is part Norwegian & we live in a Norwegian community, so a lot of those traditions are practiced here. It has particularly become a tradition at Christmas time to make those Norwegian favorites.
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make Norwegian lefse as well as my grandmother used to. None of my aunts or cousins make it, so I am pretty proud that I can.
My cooking tragedies
The first year my husband and I were married, I made a chocolate layer cake for his birthday that fell and almost slid off the cake plate!

Spaghetti Chicken Casserole
We loved this casserole! It was easy to make with ingredients that one usually has on hand. Great way to use leftover chicken. I served it with a salad and a crusty roll.

Dark Chocolate Cake I
I was disappointed in this recipe and will not make it again. I didn't like the texture and it fell apart. I much prefer other chocolate cake recipes that use squares of chocolate and buttermilk in them.

Chocolate Eclair Cake
This was very easy to make, but I was not impressed. I even used homemade fudge sauce as the topping. I guess we just find mushy graham crackers very unappealing. Sorry, won't be making this again.
