I'm a wife, a mom to 2 little girls, a runner, a nurse, and I love to be in the kitchen when I have the time. I am always trying to find tasty healthy recipes- but I love a good splurge recipe once in awhile too. Allrecipes is addicting!
My favorite things to cook
I have been baking for a long time- so I feel comfortable with that. I love to experiment with different breads. I am a "decent" cook- getting better with experience. I love to bake and cook for other people- and do so every opportunity I get.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday mornings growing up mom would make the best cinnamon coffee cake I have ever tasted- which was passed down many generations before her. Once in awhile she would make her famous mashed potato cinnamon rolls instead. They are to die for!
My cooking triumphs
I don't have too many problems with what I make. I am still learning to alter recipes to make them more healthy for my family- with trial and error- but they usually turn out good. I love baking breads, sweets, and anything with cheese or chocolate- if only those things were good for us!
My cooking tragedies
Umm... dropping the hot pads in the oven and starting them on fire! I took tongs and ran them outside, screaming all the way. Hang on to those babies tightly! :)
