I am very blessed to be able to be a stay-at-home mother where I can focus on my family while my kids are still at home.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking breads and cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving at our home is very traditional. My husband smokes a turkey and then we bake it in the oven. It turns out wonderfully and goes well with a smokey red wine gravy! We love having distant relatives come stay with us to share in a huge traditional meal with all the trimmings near a warm crackling fire!
My cooking triumphs
I have a few recipes for cakes and cookies where I have substituted some whole wheat flour for regular flour, and olive oil for butter. They turn out great and my kids still gobble them down. I get to feel like I am getting them to eat just a little bit healthier, and they still get their sweets!
