I'm a big city girl transplanted to small town life. I have a great daughter who is always under foot in the kitchen (and every where else for that matter.) My weakness is bread. I love a slice of homemade bread from the oven.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake mostly, and try new recipes other than your everyday dinner. The usual stuff gets incredibly dull after a time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up in many different places all over the globe. My family has always been one to try something new and exciting. And also in order to truly come of age in my family, you must master the secret family recipe for peanut butter fudge.
My cooking triumphs
My homemade chicken pot pie recipe, My first loaf of bread... oh..and the fact that everyone says I can now make the before mentioned fudge better than my grandmother (and THAT is quite a compliment!)
My cooking tragedies
The cheesecake I made for my mother and step father years ago.. it was more the crust than anything... I could have used it for a frisbee. Not sure what happened but I am just thankful that no one chipped a tooth!(I have gotten better at cheesecake since, though)
