I enjoy camping and fishing. Every summer we go into the West Coast of Vancouver Island with our boat and fifth wheel and go fishing, bring it home and freeze the halibut and smoke the Coho for later
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes for anything especially seafood.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Trying to duplicate the Swedish and Norwegian recipes handed down to me from my maternal grandmother.
My cooking triumphs
one of my triumphs in cooking is perfecting a good smoked salmon, one of our favorites is Indian Candied Smoke Salmon, however we have perfected our own recipe with "secret" spices to make it unique.
My cooking tragedies
Had company for dinner and put the lasagna in the oven, but I have a digital stove with the buttons in front, it got bumped off and the lasagna was still uncooked when it came time to serve it. Put it back in and turned it up really high wrapped it in tin foil and manage to get it heated enough to eat.... then I served extra wine. Enought said!!!
