I am a kindergarten teacher gone Mom last December. I am married to a great guy, and we have the cutest baby boy named Ben. We live in a small town in the Adirondack mountains of New York. Since I have become a stay at home Mom, I have really started to develop my love for cooking. I enjoy making family recipes, and also trying to come up with new ones. I used to burn everything I baked but now I am getting so much better!
My favorite things to cook
Family meals, quick and easy dinners, baking cakes and pies and cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday night dinner, usually something hearty like Turkey, or roast beef with potatos, veggies, stuffing, yorkshire puddings, and a yummy dessert like apple crisp.
My cooking triumphs
Making my first and sucessful pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving, everyone loved them, and they turned out perfect!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count! But you keep on truckin if you want to get any better! My worst one was probably when I made a dessert where the pastry was still raw on the inside and served it before knowing this!
