i'm a mother of four, two teens and a set of twin toddlers, YIKES! born and raised in idaho , with a few years in wyoming after getting married, sooooo glad to be back home!
My favorite things to cook
anything edible. desserts are my specialty, while my husband makes the main courses. oldest daughter practicing to become a chef, in hopes of going to culinary arts school in the next year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
homemade christmas gifts. every year my teens and i decide what to make, it's different every year, cookie platters, candy boxes, "cookies in a jar" and other mixes, and non food items like homemade body powder, facial scrubs, milk bath,etc. we have fun planning preparing and delivering "homemade" gifts to family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
teaching my teens to cook so if i hear "what's for dinner?" i can reply "whatever you make for us!"
My cooking tragedies
any time i try to out-do my husband in the kitchen only to have him make something better.
