Married, homeschooling mom of three. Love to cook and bake. I'm always trying new things and pushing the limits on flavor!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes and desserts... still love to make comfort food like my mom used to make but now I try to make the processed ingredients from scratch instead. I am loving baking more all the time and have a slight cupcake obsession. Making cupcakes and frosting from scratch is new to me and I can't believe I used boxed and canned stuff for so long!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We just have our traditional dishes at holidays... green bean casserole, shrimp salad, pies, nothing too fancy. After Grandma passed away it became a tradition for my sister and myself to continue to make Grandma's cheesecake and Grandma's shrimp salad.
My cooking triumphs
Baking many new things I have never tried before. Granola bars, cupcakes from scratch, breads and my proudest recent accomplishment - Red Velvet Whoopie Pies with pink frosting for Valentine's Day. They were moist, delicious and so beautiful.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few, but I try not to remember those!! Pretty much everything turns out as planned unless I don't watch it properly and it burns!
