Verla designed and made this wedding cake for her grandson's wedding.
Lemon buttermilk cake. One of Verla's delicious desserts.
Verla's son cooking her homemade ableskievers. The authentic recipe was her mother's - from some first-generation Danish friends.
Verla's homemade fresh strawberry pie tastes amazing!
Another wedding cake made by Verla - this one for a granddaughter. It was carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and buttercream decorations (also hand-made by Verla). It tasted amazingly fantastic!
Homemade peach and strawberry crepes.
Verla's first attempt to make and use modeling chocolate.
She made 12 of those modeling chocolate turkeys for a fancy Thanksgiving dinner - one for each person at the table.
Verla's homemade hamburger soup. YUM! It's a staple at her house....
Verla's "World-famous" chocolate torte. One of the best desserts ever created!
Who said diets have to be boring and tasteless? This cottage cheese parfait tastes terrific.
One more wedding cake made by Verla. This was for her daughter's wedding.
Homemade Baps - Scottish dinner rolls that taste amazing.
Verla's own recipe for chicken flautas (with steamed fresh asparagus). Definitely a favorite of her family and friends.
Danish Kiffles - another recipe from her mother's Danish friends. They are incredibly light, crispy and delicious. (The cookies, not the Danish friends!)
"Chick-a-loni" - a wonderfully tasty recipe for phoney abalone (it tastes just like real abalone steaks) from Verla's Aunt Verla. (Yep. Verla was named after this beloved aunt.)
A quilt sewn by Verla for a great grandchild. The top came "pre-sewn," Verla finished it with backing, filling and edging.
This special quilt, made for another great grandchild is one of Verla's favorite projects. She designed and created each of the animal appliqué squares, making it truly a one-of-a-kind, original quilt.
Verla's first (and one of her only) attempts to crochet. She made this three foot diameter table cover for her mother-in-law, who would never use it because it was too pretty. LOL! It took Verla three years to complete it.
