When I started using this website I was a young wife and mama and fulltime college student...I wanted to make quick yummy meals, and I wanted to bake fun things with my kiddo, and make everything from scratch. In the almost five years since I've used this website, I feel like a much more accomplished cook :0) I still no longer make pancakes from the box or anything! love it.
My favorite things to cook
Everything but meat...Im horrible at cooking it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking/smoking meat from the Alaskan wilderness!
And of course No Bake cookies, a treat I loved from my grandmother that my boys just beg for.
My cooking triumphs
Making a reallly cute cake for my sons 1st birthday, and every other dinner that scores well.
I finally got to make my own honey and jam in 2010! I was so excited, it was years in the 'wanting.' :-) Made jam and honey with Alaska's state flower: fireweed.
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies occur in my kitchen more often than not!
