About this Cook
I have a food blog called Kitchen Simplicity, it's all about having great food, at home, while keeping things simple. Pop by for a visit. Just go to
My favorite things to cook
I love to work with dough, and I love to make and decorate cakes. My problem is I like to cook more then me and my husband can eat... so I have to slow myself down a bit.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Previously, Christmas Eve with my whole family, having Turkey Dinner for Lunch, and then having a smorgasbord of food in the evening while we open presents and celebrate together. But, now that my husband and I just recently moved to Norway, we will have to start our own Christmas traditions with our children.
My cooking triumphs
My friend allowed me to make her wedding cake back in 2007 and that started a new passion of mine... cake decorating! Since then I have been able to make 4 more wedding cakes and numerous birthday cakes. Fun fun fun!
My cooking tragedies
One time I was making butter tart slice (which is like a really big butter tart in a 9x13 pan) and I accidentally added 3 cups of flour instead of 3 tsp of flour. Needless to say I quickly tried to scoop out all of the flour that I could. :) It turned out to be more like a butter tart cake... but I still enjoyed it!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
This is sooo yummy. I usually do not care for Teriyaki flavored things but this was awesome! I made it exactly as written and wouldn't change a thing.

Coconut Chocolate Cake I
The filling for this recipe is absolutely delicious and I will use it again. Other then that I did not follow the recipe. I used a very moist chocolate cake and found that it did not need any extra icing. The filling is so good there is nothing else really needed. Besides a tall glass of milk or coffee! :)

Quick Butter Croissants
This recipe is excellent! So light and fluffy. Not as fluffy as the tradition croissant... but I haven't been able to master that yet. It really does have the taste and feel of a croissant though, so that satisfies me! I only baked 8 croissants and am freezing the rest so I can have them freshly baked when I feel like it. Just freeze them in their croissant shape and then on the day you want to bake them take them out a couple of hours ahead of time to thaw and rise. Also, beat 1 Tbsp of water with the egg before brushing it on... it makes a better glaze.
