I am a mom first, after that it's all relative to what kind of mod I am in that day. I love to do a little bit of everything. I am finding out new things about myself everday, and loving this journey called life.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake first and foremost. cheesecake, banana bread, cookies, I am just starting to get into candy making and love the challenge. I am studying nutrition, so I am constantly trying to restructure recipes to bring a healthier approach.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is from the south, so it's always a lot of soul food. Fried chicken, collard greens, macaroni and cheese, gumbo.... I love it all and everyday am trying to learn my roots.
My cooking triumphs
My mom's chili, which I knew all of the ingredients, but not the exact quantities. The chili came out so fabulous that my biggest critic (my 18 year old brother) even loved it. A very proud accomplishment for me.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to remember... ;)
