Well, It’s Thursday and tomorrow I get my daughter back!! She’s 3 ½ years old and she just spent her first week at grandma and grandpa’s house! She’s done so good, sleeping through the night and going to bed good. I’ve talked to her twice a day since we left her there after our weekend visit… MORE

About Me
I'm 28, married to a great guy, have 2 wonderful kids, and a cat. My favorite thing to do is hang out with my kids. I also love to try new recipes. I work as a lab tech.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook mexican dishes. I would cook more Italian dishes too, but my husband is not a big fan of Pasta - there's something wrong with him I think! Not much of a baker - I'm a bit afriad of it. I can do 2 pies and 1 cookie very well but beyond that - yikes!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was young, at leat once a year all my family on my mom's side would pack into my grandparents little house and have "Uffda Tacos" AKA fry bread tacos. Everyone brought 1 ingredient. They got the name "Uffda Tacos" because my grandpa (who is an old Norweigien)would always unbuckle his belt and say "Uffda" when he was finished. My grandpa has since passed on and now my family is spread across the country, but that will always be one of my favorite memories.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I make something new and my husband says he likes it.
My cooking tragedies
My grandma use to make the best home made bread ever. She never used a recipe. I decided that I would find a recipe for bread and make it on my own. It didn't rise ay all. So I tried again, and again it didn't rise. My spirit was broken (fragile teenager spirit). It took about 15 years but I finally tried working with yeast again and have found success! I have not been able to recreate my grandma's bread tho.
