Talk about a "family meal" at my house....lol
My favorite things to cook
Anything I can cook in "bulk" -- lasagne's, spaghetti, chili, etc. & "Fun stuff" for the little ones.
I bake & decorate cakes - and I'm a bit of an 'artist' and some of my cakes have been pretty doggone cool! Maybe I can get some pictures uploaded of some of them soon.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really didn't get too much "passed down" to me -- my parents had 4 daughters & became the "chosen son" - while my mom was teaching my older sister to cook, I was outside playing baseball, football or beating up the little boys in the neighborhood.
I do have my mom's recipe for peach cobbler that is soooooo good!
My cooking triumphs
When I can take someones idea & bring it to "life" in a cake & they say "Tha is exactly what I was thinking about!"
