I am a Pampered Chef® Consultant, visiting people's homes to demonstrate a recipe using our FANTASTIC products! I enjoy all of the great people that I am able to meet through this venture. I have been married since November 2000, have two stepchildren and one little boy that was just born in April of 2005. I love my family!
My favorite things to cook
I always enjoy baking desserts! (This is my way of getting to eat them, too!) When I was working, I would bake and bring in goodies almost weekly. I love sharing things that I have made with others and seeing the smile it brings to their faces!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I can remember growing up (I was probably 10 or so) my Mom would let me make Sunday dinner, and then I would spend Sunday evening "testing" a new dessert recipe. It always made me feel good to be in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
Especially since finding this site, and using Pampered Chef cookbooks, most of the things I make work out well! I usually make recipes on this site that have already been reviewed by quite a few people, and that have received high marks from most of the reviewers!
My cooking tragedies
I am sure that I had many crazy concoctions that I tried as I was growing up and experimenting in the kitchen...nothing really stands out, though, as a tragedy!
