About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love Chili, like an abnormal level of love... I've been getting into soups lately with some successes and some failures. I love making bread, but I fail more often than I succeed. But the successes were awesome! I just made this hummus from a recipe on this site, and I will never buy it again. I'm going to try this roasted red pepper one next, I can't wait.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a norwegian family... so, I've eaten my share of lutefisk. I would say that my favorite family recipes are definitly not of Norwegian origin :)
My cooking triumphs
I made this KILLER cabbage soup, it had about 700 calories per bowl, but dynamite.
My cooking tragedies
I have a plethora of these, but the 3 that stand out are: I made lemon chicken for my now ex-wife when we were dating. I basically tripled the amount of baking soda, omfg nasty. I marinated some cubed beef in this pepper extract sauce, yeah I maced the house when I started to brown it. I made this bread and somehow let it ferment or something, it came out bizarre and sourish. I don't think I could even repeat this if I tried.

Authentic Kicked-Up Syrian Hummus
This was dynamite! I used freshly ground cumin and followed the recipe exactly, except now I see I was supposed to use the food processor. I used my blender, but next time I'm using the food processor because I think another minute in there would have killed my blender.
