About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things with crazy ingredients and seeing how they turn out. I'm a wiz with left-over make overs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a strong Finnish background and have made it a habit to put traditional cooking into our holidays and family gatherings.
My cooking triumphs
Any time my family says this is one for the book - cookbook scrap book of favorite recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I hate throwing food away if a recipe doesn't work out. I never follow a recipe and always tweak it - good or bad.

Elegant Pheasant
I added 1 teaspoon of fresh diced rosemary. I have also added basil which goes well with the creamy sauce and even some tarragon.

Savory Cheddar Zucchini Muffins
That zucchini does not have a whole lot of flavor on its own. This is a very good savory muffin with a lot of room for a flavor profile to be added. What I really appreciate is that this a savory muffin that turns out moist. Thank you for a good base recipe that allows for some experimentation.

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles
This is a great basic recipe and so much can be added to it to please anyone's taste. Beware of adding garlic due to the acidic content. You can either use already pickled garlic or add some turmeric to disguise the discoloration. For those of you with problems in processing these pickles for canning; both shrinkage and no-crisp. This is NOT a recipe to be used for canning. To can you need to adjust your liquid to contain more acid for crispness and when you "cook" (canning does cook them) they will reduce as the natural water evaporates into the canning liquid. Please use a recipe specifically designed for canning.
