I am the wife on my wonderful husband of 4 years and we are currently in the process of adopting our first child from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I love watching people enjoy the food I create. I sometimes think I'm a bit too ambitious with some recipes I try, but I'll attempt anything once. My husband tells me I don't give myself enough credit when it comes to my cooking & baking. I like to be creative with how I present my food. I don't think i'm as much of a great cook, but rather a great recipe chooser/maker.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I'll try anything once. I also like to try to incorporate local products.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We never had any growing up, and still don't have any "traditions". Whenever there's a family holiday get together it's expected that I'll bring the devilled eggs.
My cooking triumphs
Most recently was my sister and brother-in-law's wedding cake. I have a picture of it posted. My father-in-law LOVES my chicken pot pie. I've had great reviews of the bell pepper jelly I made and canned.
My cooking tragedies
I should ask my husband. Poor guy is the guinea pig for all my "experimental" recipes. HA HA
