I'm a stay at home mom which I prefer to consider my occupation as "Home Management" (sounds much better than "stay at home mom"... and more professional! LOL) I have 4 children: Zakkary - 18, Kayla - 15, Jayci - 3, J.J. - 1
I am married to a very wonderful man who took in Zakkary and Kayla as his own. He treats all of our children as equals, as well as me. I love to do anything outdoors. I LOVE camping and cooking outdoors. We like to go camping to relax... but I love to cook outdoors so much that my husband has to remind that we're "relaxing". LOL
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook most anything that just plain sounds delish! I like to slow cook often just because it's so simple. I'm actually in charge of a recipe exchange group with my church and I love doing it because I like to get lots of tasty meals from All Recipes as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving has got to be our most traditional of all. I always have people requesting that we have Thanksgiving at our house. We live about 60 miles from most of my family, but they make the drive just for the meal.
My cooking triumphs
I taught myself to cook! My mother was always too busy while I was a child, so all my sister and I learned to cook was tater tots and tv dinners. So, once I was out on my own I decided I HAD to learn! I taught myself through trial and error, but I took it on quickly. I love to cook/bake.
My cooking tragedies
In the beginning of my "learning", just lots of burned meals or tasteless meals. Ya gotta learn from experience right?
