I am a BUSY stay at home mom of two great kids. I am always on the look-out for easy weeknight recipes. I like to bake too. We are a good ole Southern family who stays active in sports, school, and church activities. My husband is a griller too.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE TO BAKE. I don't relish messing with raw meat, but do it anyhow. I like simple and delicious recipes, but sometimes go for the hard crazy gourmet stuff when time allows.
My favorite family cooking traditions
OHHHHH, so many family meals. I have a pretty big family that gets together for almost everything. I host Thanksgiving every year and all our meals are potluck except for my daddy's fish fry's. We cook good simple staples and a few southern specialties. My moms jam cake is to die for as well as her three day cake.
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate pumpkin harvedst cake, I made for Thanksgiving last year. Oh my, it was on the cover of Southern Living magazine. Well it was gorgeous. That is until you tried to eat it. DRY DRY DRY. So I guess that was a triumph and a tragedy.
My cooking tragedies
Oh it was definetly TACO BAKE. I made that as our 1st meal together for my new husband. We were 18 and my mama did all the cooking. Needless to say we still get a laugh about that, and I never made it again...
