So what’s the big deal about Allrecipes.com?  Hmm. Gonna take a while to explain it I guess so I had better start from the beginning..It was sometime in 1999 that I was online, looking for recipes of some kind. What exactly I was looking for I can’t remember. That was thirteen years ago and my… MORE

This is an old Dutch proverb I found while looking around online for interesting things about butter.  What a concept! I must admit to being one who shuns butter, except on very few occasions.  The saturated fat content in butter has always scared me and with having family members who have… MORE

As Thanksgiving approaches and the weather changes, the holiday hell begins. Usually I let things pass without much of a notice as I am alone with no family near me. Friends are nice, but around the holidays they have their own family they want to be with. I usually spend time with some… MORE

About Me
I cook because I love to create. I find it to be very soothing and rewarding. My mother was my greatest influence, but because of my love of experimentation I think I am a better cook than she is now. :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything healthy. I love to try new recipes and love the challenge of altering high caloriefat recipes to something more healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish Christmas cookies. These were baked by my mother and now by me.
My cooking triumphs
I have had few failures when cooking. Every new recipe is a triumph when it turns our terrific.
My cooking tragedies
The first cake I made by myself was a bit of a disaster. I think I was 11 or 12. I didn't let it cool in the pans after baking and frosted it while it was still warm. Needless to say, it sort of fell apart. Refusing to let that stop me, I held the cake together with half a box of toothpicks. My father ate half the cake.. he was a good Dad. Didn't complain once about the toothpicks. :)
