About this Cook
I am a true Alaska Native.Born and raised in Kotzebue, Alaska, I now live in Anchorage,AK.Until about 7 years ago,I did not know how to cook;until I got into a relationship and there were kids.Ah yes, kids need to eat and they need nutrition, so that was where I started and have not stopped since.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy dishes such as casseroles, cookies or muffins because there is so many alterations or substitutions you can make. My favorite hobby is baking. I recently made fresh bread for the first time and now I'm hooked.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, I was raised by my great grandmother. She was full Eskimo, and so our dishes were seal, caribou, moose, ptarmigan, fish and so on. During the summer, our food would be stored underground because at camp we didn't have electricity. Seal oil is the traditional dipping sauce.
My cooking triumphs
Definitely the crusty white bread recipe I got from this site. For my bread to rise like it did was just a sight to see and to watch butter melt on a dinner roll that "I" made...priceless.(photo of the rolls on my profile photos, btw)
My cooking tragedies
Pancakes! Always! Oh, and chili. I cannot make a chili to save my life.

Buttermilk Pancakes II
Wow. These pancakes were amazing. I won't be seen at Denny's any time soon for breakfast. I threw some blueberries on the top before I flipped the pancake. Made them taste even better. The pancakes were so fluffy and tasty. I cannot wait to make them for my mother.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Fantastic cookie. I used real peanut butter and that seemed to make a huge difference. Will make again. Already have a request to, so I better hop to it.
