I have been a stay-at-home Mom since 2002 after being a busy career woman - and I love it. However, my creative "outlet" since staying home has become searching for new recipes to experiment with as I get bored with the "same old, same old".
My favorite things to cook
I like to try a variety of things, sometimes the more challenging the better. I like trying new recipes from this site as well as those from some of the Food Network chefs: Paula Deen, Giada DiLaurentis, Ina Garten, Emeril. I also enjoy making decadent goodies for my sons' school bake sales. :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big feasts for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter along with a cookie smorgasbord for family and friends for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Finding a recipe for Roast Duck that has absolutely "wowed" my family that included some strong non-duck enthusiasts.
My cooking tragedies
Homemade bread! Just can't seem to get the knack on kneading loaf bread properly......
