Mom of one kiddo. When I am not enjoying my preschooler, or crafting - I try to work in my personal fitness.
My favorite things to cook
Quick foods that offer a lot of versatility, and novelty foods that make ordinary foods into something festive and special.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking family recipes that have been handed down through our families - and using those traditional recipes to explore what it means to be family around the dinner table.
My cooking triumphs
So proud of the "coffee jelly' that I made to included in Iced Lattes for a family party. I served them barista style in tall clear glasses, so you could really see the cubes. Then topped with whipped cream, sprinkles and adorable paper straws. It was a HUGE hit, and not nearly as bad for you as another dessert!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to create a "light" version of carrot cake by increasing the carrots, replacing the oil with applesauce and using artificial sweetener. The first attempt had to be tossed out, it was inedible!
