About this Cook
I've been in the kitchen since I was a little girl. I love to make and create new meals and use recipes that have been in my family as well as try new ones and adapt to my family's liking. We just moved from Japan where I was a baker/caterer on our base.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes especially cheesecakes, or basically anything that pleases my family
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my children and I make Christmas cookies together - gingerbread/sugar. I also host or help host a cookie exchange. We all bring 6 dozen or so cookies of the same kind and go home with 6 other kinds of cookies. It helps me get my holiday baking done to give to neighbors and friends.
My cooking triumphs
When my family or friends love it, I know I have a keeper. :)
My cooking tragedies
I can be a klutz in the kitchen - burning or cutting myself. It doesn't deter me though from cooking. :)

Grandmother Stougaard's Caramel Pecan Sweet Rolls
Yum! Yum! Yum! These are great! The whole family gobbled them up. I didn't add the nuts as I have one that doesn't like them, but they still were great! Thanks!

General Tsao's Chicken
Great recipe! I made a few modifications. I doubled the sauce and cooked in pot however only used 2 tsp ginger and 3 Tbsp cornstarch. I also used regular vinegar and no MSG. I didn't coat the chicken but pan fried in canola oil. Everyone loved it!

Corn Dogs
Great recipe! We all enjoyed it along with some homemade onion rings also on this site! I did have some trouble having the batter stay on, but I hadn't looked at previous reviews to see how to handle that and I'm sure I'll get it to work next time. :)

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
