As a new stay at home mom, I am just discovering the joy of cooking and taking care of a family. I love to try new recipes and the biggest compliment I get is when my husband wants seconds.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that tastes good, and healthy, homemade baby food for my 1 year old.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember coming home after school to a kitchen filled with the aroma of freshly baked bread and cinnamon rolls. I hope to bring my family together the same way my mother did through baking and eating dinner together every night.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a pot roast for Sunday dinner was a huge turning point. When I realized that I could cook a good roast, it gave me the confidence to cook anything that I put my mind to.
My cooking tragedies
I was so excited to try the new cake decorating kit I got and make 4th of July cupcakes. I filled the muffin tins up to the top and anxiously waited for them to bake so I could start decorating. Of course they overflowed in the oven and made a huge mess everywhere. Needless to say, my cupcakes looked nothing like the ones on Martha Stewart's website that I tried to recreate!
