A busy mom of 4 that's always trying to find great meal ideas that satisfy everyones taste. I've always tried to incorporate a variety of ingredients early on so I seldom hear, "I don't like that!"
My favorite things to cook
My house is always the house to go and be assured that there is fresh baked goods. Probably a carryover of growing up in a house with a mother who always baked for us kids. I also try to take traditional recipes and put my own spin on them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Besides the traditional holiday meals, I've tried to encourage my daughters that presentation is as important as the meal itself.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering a perfect prime rib and basic to die for pie crusts, salads and bar recipes are all some of my solid successes.
My cooking tragedies
While I was trying to master homemade bread, my loaves were not even appealing to the birds.
