I am a 38 year old mom and model. I am not new to cooking, just new to cooking WELL. ;) I currently live about 30 minutes west of Chicago, Illinois.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new and unique things, however with a young baby it isn't easy...so I stick to pastas, Mexican dishes, Italian, casseroles, ground beef dishes, cookies, cakes, brownies and trifiles. I love to bake almost anything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have an annual Christmas cookie baking party - it is almost always just the females and the young children. We spend all day and night making all of our cookies for the season - one of my fondest memories that I plan to carry on.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I get a great reaction!
My cooking tragedies
My miniscule meatloaf, the chicken that refused to cook and the fudge disaster to name only a few...
