My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking all types of foods. I have done some catering for various scrapbooking parties I participate in. Many of my recipes come from this site. I love doing research and then tweeking them to my own personal taste.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have tried to keep my Norwegian Heritage going for my family. I make a lot of tradional foods from when I grew up. The only Norwegian I don't do unless I'm with extended family is cooking Lutefisk which is basically a type of cod. It is one food that is an aquired taste.
My cooking triumphs
I made my first quiche not to long ago. Have to say, I've always loved quiche, but never have made it myself. Didn't know how easy they are to make. The recipe I used I found on this site.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few. The one that comes to mind was when I was cooking for a "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" party at our house. I had made a cheesecake the night before and it spilled over into the oven. Well I didn't take the time to clean it well, so when my husband went to cook the roast beef for dinner, the entire house filled with smoke. It was in the middle of winter, so there we are with the doors open trying to get the smoke out and still cook the meal. Not sure who was coming for the dinner, made it all that much worse. But thankfully it was people we knew well and we had a great laugh over it.
