About this Cook
I love pasta and rice dishes. I was raised in a house with a mom that could take any 5 ingredients and make a fabulous meal out of it. The key to good cooking is experimentation. Even if I don't succeed on the first try of a new recipe, I will keep tweeking it and trying until I get it right. I really stink at baking, so any tips are welcome.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta Salads, stir fry's, mixed or layered salads and Japanese cooking are my favorites. I'm trying to get better at Greek and Italian Cuisine. I have a Swedish background and feel extremely comfortable making Scandinavian and English Recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We all take turns cooking for one another. Our family get-togethers usually end up in potluck parties because everyone has a new recipe they want to try out.
My cooking triumphs
I've created several recipes from scratch including American-Italian Pasta Salad, Taco Pie, Mushroom Barley Soup, and a Strawberry-Banana-Guava Daquiri.
My cooking tragedies
My cookies either burn or turn out extremely flat. Ican't tell if I'm using the wrong pans or my flour is too old. Maybe my ingredients aren't in the right combinations. In any case...HELP!

Bean Soup
I have made a similar recipe for navy bean soup, however I never heard of the baking soda method and I'm eager to try it. I would state that it is a good idea to "test" the ham before you put it in the recipe. Some hams have more salt than others. If your ham is salty, cut back on the table salt in the recipe or use water as stated in this recipe. If it's rather bland, use chicken broth/stock before adding table salt, it will add more flavor. Another tip...if you would like to refrain from using pork products for this recipe, I suggest using smoked turkey legs in place of the ham bone and ham meat. You may want to use chicken broth in place of water though since most smoked turkey legs have half the salt of ham bones or ham hocks.

Buttermilk Cornbread Muffins
Kind of bland. Needs a little more sweetness.
