I am currently a stay at home mother for my two daughters that are 3 and 4 years old.When I have time on my hands (haha) I enjoy making elaborate meals and I LOVE to have company over for supper! I have recently found interest in cake decorating, mainly with fondant, and I am totally addicted! I am testing the waters with organic cakes in hopes of soon starting a cake business selling regular and organic decorated cakes. It would be a dream come true to be able to visit Anne from Pink Cake Box and learn more about the cake business. Had I ever known there was going to be a passion in my life like this, I would've gone to a culinary school instead of nursing school!
My favorite things to cook
I don't have one favorite thing I specifically love to make. I love baking, but I also love to eat it ALL! I make something new almost every night. Only a few times a month we will have a main stay meal like spaghetti. My cooking range doesn't get too crazy since my little girls have to eat it too but when their little taste buds are ready, I would like to learn some mediteranian and asian styles!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can remember back when I was a child, my grandmother lived with us. She was big into cooking and baking. On the weekends we would make homemade caramel and cinnamon rolls. The smell and taste remain so vivid in my mind! I don't take much time to prepare breakfast these days, but the rolls are soon to become incorporated into an occasional weekend!
My cooking triumphs
Just about every Christmas. My husband and I have the celebration at our home. I love it! I get to do the decorations and all of the cooking and baking! It's always a long day and ends with us all miserably full, but it's always worth it!
My cooking tragedies
Can a person seriously BURN boxed Mac and Cheese??!! whoops....I did! Who thought I would ever learn how to cook?!
