I am a homemaker and a kindergarten teacher. I have been married for 15 years and have two children. My daughter is 11 and my son is 4. They keep me very busy. I enjoy cooking and keeping my house clean. Although, I don't have enough time to do either one as much as I would like. I enjoy trying new foods and getting to know other people that have the same interests.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything, especially when I have time to do so without being interupted. I tend to cook alot of Italian dishes and sweets. I love very few things more that making a good meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make pies. My mom and grandmother both love to bake. I still love going to my parents house and cooking a meal with my mom, especially on the holidays. It is something that me and my mom share that she doesn't share with my sister.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I make something that my husband says is "a keeper!" I feel triumphant. It also pleases me when my daughter asks for something specific that I make from scratch.
My cooking tragedies
Not long ago, I grabbed the wrong oil dispenser when I went to put a little oil over my spaghetti noodles. My daughter and husband bit into their spaghetti and told me it tasted like soap. I had accidentally grabbed my dishwashing soap dispenser instead of the oil dispenser. I was in a hurry! I made another batch of noodles. I was thankful they started eating before I did.
