I work for a children's hospital and have three beautiful children and a husband that has supported me going back to work after almost 8years as a stay at home mom.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake almost anything. I especially love Christmas baking time and especially like to make pumpkin rolls and apple pies. I also love making breakfast foods but could do without having to cook dinner. I always feel like I make the same things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Right after Thanksgiving I start baking Xmas cookies. The first ones I start with are waffle cookies and the kids love helping to make the icing and filling them. As soon as I get the waffle iron out they come running to help (probably to test them also!!)
My cooking triumphs
My first apple pie I made, I had the hardest time rolling out the dough and getting transferred into the pie plate. I think my first pie crust was an inch thick (it was gross) and patched together. After several years of practice, I can now make cutouts to make it look picture perfect.
My cooking tragedies
My husband loves chocolate gobs and I found a recipe for one and made them for him. They took so long to make (baking and filling) but I was determined. When my husband bit into the first one he made an automatic facebut quickly covered up by saying they were delicious. So I tried one. All you could taste was baking soda. They were disgusting. I had put 2 Tbsp of baking soda instead of 2 tsp.
