About this Cook
I'm a stay-at-home mom to two very different young boys. I also have two dogs and a husband who usually works late so I have to cook things that can be reheated.
My favorite things to cook
I love cookies and muffins because my boys can help me cook. It's a fun thing to do together. I also enjoy ethnic food. My family is Scottish/Finnish so I especially enjoys those cuisines.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My oldenst boy's teacher gave me a recipe for wheat bread that you make in a plastic zipper bag. The boys love making that and then eating their hot bread with warm chocolate milk. It reminds me of my childhood eating my mom's homemade bread straight from the oven slathered with fresh butter we bought from an Amish dairy farmer.
My cooking triumphs
Making my mother-in-law's brother's recipe for Finnish coffee bread is very complicated but I make it well and impress the heck out of my husband's family. It makes me feel very good.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make my mother-in-law's brother's recipe for Finnish pancakes to save my life. Every time I try they are too runny and greasy.

Crispy Rice Bake
Very good! I made this with puffed wheat instead of rice crispies because it's what I had and it was very tasty. I'm deducting one star because it looks a little gross and it doesn't make a lot.

Welsh Tea Cakes
My only problem with this recipe is that raisins are too fat for a rolled cookie so I used currants instead. I also experimented with other liquids I could use instead of milk. Pumpkin pie filling and condensed tomato soup worked well. Yes, tomato soup!

Sausage Plait
This tasted good but was a bit too labor-intensive for me. Hard boiling the eggs,pre-cooking the sausage and making, rolling and cutting the dough took a lot of time, made quite a mess and left me with a lot of dirty pans and utensils.
