I am a married working mother with grown kids. Now that the kids are grown I have a lot more time to cook but only myself and my husband to cook for! Hubby won't eat leftovers and i can't seem to cook in small quantities (old habits die hard). My dog has loved reaping the benefits of this which is why he is now on a diet!
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new recipes. Whether it's meals or baked goodies, I love to try anything new.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies. I love to give them as gifts. Not just cookies but bars and candy too. Anything yummy that will look great in a cookie tin. This past year, i spent 14 hours in the kitchen, baking non stop and loving every minute of it.
My cooking triumphs
I had my husbands family over for thanksgiving dinner a couple years ago. Everything turned out great. I was stressed out of my mind but in the end, I was quite proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
I still have trouble with the first batch of cookies..They almost always burn. Recently, i made a banana cake that burned around the edges and was raw in the middle. My brownies sometimes come out this way as well.
