I am a wife, mother of 1, homemaker (this includes the chef part of me), business owner, graphic and web designer, room parent, knitter, and crochter.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake sweets - mostly cookies, cakes, cupcakes, muffins and my husband and I have waistlines to prove it!! I also love to try new appetizers. I search out recipes for one-dish meals to meet both our dietary and scheduling needs.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is well known for whoopie pies, chocolate chip cookies and chocolate snappers. I'm constantly trying to figure out her "secret ingredient". I always make Buckeye Balls at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving 2006 - the perfect Martha Stewart turkey.
My cooking tragedies
Anything with yeast in it and pie crusts. Self-root canals are easier for me.
