I'm a wife, a mom, an optimist and a dreamer. I am a stay at home mom to a beautiful little girl named Clara. She's 17 months old. I take care of my 11 month old nephew and 6 month old niece during the week. I love cooking for my family!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook savory dishes. Crock pots are fun, appetizers are fun. I like to cook American comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stuffed shells on Christmas! We get them ready ahead of time and then just pop them in the oven...who has time to cook on Christmas!?!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner for my family and my husband's family at our home. We both have three sisters, so with husbands, kids, grandparents, etc, I think we topped out at almost 30 people!
My cooking tragedies
I burn cookies. I'm definitely no the best baker ever! And one year at Thanksgiving I let the potatoes sit too long before mashing...they were a gluey mess!
