I am a mother of two (three if you count my dear husband) and i love to cook for my family and friends! I would rather have friends over to eat then eat at a restaurant(pricey) or at our friends house (because I love to cook!).
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything, but my favorite thing to cook are breads/pies/cakes/cookies. I also love to make soups. We are a hot tea drinking family so I especially love to make different tea biscuits and such.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love Sunday mornings because caramel rolls are a must! Just as homemade baked brown beans with molassas bread is a saturday night stape. I love to cook with my kids as it has taught them how to do fractions and they are only in kindergarten and 1st grade. Christams cookies and a big thing in my family. My kids generally eat everything i make because they helped make it.
My cooking triumphs
I was 8 when I made my first pie- my dad helped me a bit to get the crust in the pan but it turned out great! I will never forget my mom's delight at coming home from work to a fresh baked bluberry pie! I also make a superbly good wild rice soup which I will place on this site for everyone!
My cooking tragedies
Over the years I have had my share of "what was I thinking moments" My dear husband has always eaten everything I cooked even if I didn't like it... My best remembered "tragedy" was when I doubled a choc chip cookie recipe but forgot to double the flour. My five brothers loved the end result but I spent two days trying to get my mom's brand new cookie sheets clean...
