About this Cook
I love to try new recipes so this site is perfect! I am a busy mom with two children and work out of the home so sometimes cooking dinner has to be quick. When I have extra time I love to read any type of book or power walk. I am active in service organizations and my children's activities.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook different pasta dishes or try recipes that have an interesting mix of ingredients. I do some baking but that is not my strength.
My favorite family cooking traditions
With our scandanavian backgrounds, a good hotdish is a must in the winter. My kids will eat anything so when we have a free evening, we will cook some pretty fantastic dinners to enjoy with wine/grape juice and candlelight...just for fun.
My cooking triumphs
If I can master baking breads, it would be a huge triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Baking....cookies, breads, cakes. I just really have problems with baking. Cooking is fine, baking is a challenge.

Resurrection Rolls
My children and their cousins had a great time with these. It was a good lesson on the empty tomb as the first thing they said when eating was "Were is the marshmallow". I also omitted the sugar and used two triangles and wrapped around one marshmallow. Will definetly make this an Easter tradition! Thank you.

Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Wine Sauce
I made slight variations to the recipe such as chopped onion and 1 glove minced garlic. I also did not add the mushrooms as I didn't have any in the pantry. The soup had a good amount of chopped mushroom so didn't miss. Cooked the frozen breasts on low for 5.5 hours and they were perfect. My family that the chicken was very good. Thanks.
