I am a wife of fourteen years and a mother of six. I love cooking for my family (most of the time) and I love the Lord.
My favorite things to cook
Huge pots or pans of chili, spaghetti, lassanga, enchiladas etc.
Lots of hearty appetites in this family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas since I was a little girl we bake cookies for family and friends. My mother started the tradition with me & now I share it with my 5 girls. It is a great way to reach out to your neighbors you don't know that well.
My cooking triumphs
I once was into baking & decorating my children's birthday cakes. Through others seeing my work, I was able to do it for others for a profit.
My cooking tragedies
I once substituted almond extract for vanilla in a chocolate chip cookie recipe and until this day my husband still reminds me of those horrible cookies!
