I'm recently married and have one husband, one kitty, and one dog. We live in Oklahoma and I work in a museum full time. I love to cook (especially desserts), as everyone in my family are spectacular cooks (I am definately not the best either!).
My favorite things to cook
Desserts by far! I am excellent at cooking and making up my own dessert recipes! They always turn out fabulous! Now if only the rest of the food I cook was that way...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family makes every meal homemade. That's how I was raised. Cookies from scratch, mashed potatos from the real things, etc. It's been such a comfort and a blessing to be around my family and not have take out!
My cooking triumphs
I have an award winning brownie recipe that I created. I also make mini cheesecakes in a variety of flavors that are divine! I would really like to open my own pastry shop.
My cooking tragedies
I did try to make a pork loin for Christmas last year and didn't follow the directions (first time I'd ever made one) and it was terrible. I thought I would adjust the time/temp and cooking length and it was just not worth eating!
