I'm married with no children, but we have several wonderful pets to keep us busy. Also, I've been a hairdresser for several years and enjoy my work very much. I've always loved to bake and cook and it makes me so happy when people (especially Hubby) love my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love making anything Mexican or Italian, and I've recently been trying to cook very healthy dishes. I love making all kinds of desserts, too. Especially cookies and cheesecakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My cooking tradition is to start baking about 20 different kinds of cookies about two weeks before Christmas to give out as gifts and I sell some of it to my coworkers and customers, and also some of my husbands coworkers. I get very tired and stressed out with all this, but it's rewarding to see how excited everyone gets over my cookies!
My cooking triumphs
I've just recently started making real cheesecakes in a springform pan, and the three that I've made have come out really good. I never thought I'd be able to make these come out so good.
My cooking tragedies
I have trouble with candy-making. I've had to throw fudge and pecan pralines away, which was a real drag!
