I'm a military wife. I cook to make new friends. We move. A lot.
My favorite things to cook
I'm an avid baker, and I'm always looking for ways to "vegan-ize" my favorite desserts. I also love to experiment with my crockpot and play around with veggies all the while trying to please my meat and potatoes husband! Worth every minute.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Saturday morning I make my Airman cinnamon rolls.
My cooking triumphs
I was once asked to make some fruit tarts for a Bible study group. I thought it would be easy to make a few, so I agreed. I managed to make 4 of the most beautiful tarts - and it was only the second time I'd tried. I was so pleased how they came out and everyone enjoyed them.
My cooking tragedies
Once I was having a dinner party and made spinach and ricotta stuffed shells, smothered in homemade tomato sauce. I had the oven and burners going, and when I pulled the casserole out of the oven there was no counter space, so I put it on the range. I forgot it was on and burned the bottom of my casserole and just about ruined the entire dish. Oops! My guests still raved about it. There's advantages for cooking for dear friends.
