I really like to cook ~ I figure if I have to do it anyway ~ make it fun! I'm a huge OU fan! Football season is finally here!!
My favorite things to cook
There is not much I don't like to cook! :) I do like to make mini swiss cheese quiches or any baked goods ~ It's relaxing for me to clean off the counter top and put on music and zone out into my recipe!!
I'm not a morning person, so make ahead breakfasts are my favorites! I'm learning how to use my slowcooker and I love grilling! Pizzas on the grill ROCK!! :)
I love Mexican food ~ enchiladas or fajitas, casseroles. I like Southern cooking ~ I'm so hooked on Paula Deen! I just want to make gumbo and cornbread every time I watch her show! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like making gingerbread houses at Christmas with my family ~
I also love it when my kids ask me for "my birthday cakes" instead of store bought ones :) I need to take a cake decorating class though!
Baking Christmas cookies and making fudge, candy and dipped pretzels for friends and neighbors is fun too.
My cooking triumphs
I've made a 3 layer Italian Cream cake that took half a day to make ~ SO worth it! :) It even looked pretty! I can bake, but man I'm not a decorator! (yet!)
My cooking tragedies
BACON!!! Every stinking time!! :)
I gave that job to my husband. Even my kids know that mom doesn't make bacon!
