I love to cook and bake for my husband and children! I've learned so much from watching others cook and hearing how they change a recipe to fit their needs. I'm not afraid to go for it, even if I don't have exactly what a recipe calls for. The Food Network and Allrecipes has really made me a worry free cook!
My favorite things to cook
I get great satisfaction when I cook something that was worth the time and effort...and mess. I'm a messy cook! I make some pretty fabulous baked stuffed chops.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to pop in some great music...like Dean Martin or Swing and make cookies like my mom and I use to do when I was growing up! Although, I try not to do that too often since homemade cookies are just about my favorite thing on earth! I can't stay away...which seriously makes my waist line suffer!
My cooking triumphs
I make a nice potato salad that never goes to waste...but I consider my greatest triumph to be a clean kitchen by the time I'm done!
My cooking tragedies
I tried this recipe once ( can't remember exactly what it was ) and it was horrible! I think I got it off the back of a condensed soup can label. All that time wasted! I hate that! That's why I love allrecipes.com! I can choose my recipes by ratings and I'm never disappointed!
