Hi. I'm JOSEPHINE aka SPITFIRE FOODIE and JOSEPHINE ? FOOD. I am a 28 year old SAHM, Army Veteran, and Military Wife. In a nutshell, I was born in the Philippines, moved to the States when I was 6, grew up, joined the Army and served as a combat medic, have moved around a lot, met husband, married, and now reside in West Virginia where my husband is stationed. I have 2 children. Josceline (6 years old) and Lindsay (3 years old). I've always worked in the medical field and was going to school for my nursing degree but that has taken the backseat until my younger daughter starts school.
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything but desserts. I believe desserts are evil and are the devil's way of making me fat! Other than that, I've been leaning towards cooking a TON of Barefoot Contessa recipes and a lot of AR recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
With my kidlets, I like to cook with them. With my family growing up, we had no cooking traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Josceline's 5th Birthday Castle Cake. It was HUGE with homemade towers. It took 3 full days and most of the night. Everyone was so amazed that nobody wanted to eat it. Almond/Chocolate Bark Butterfly Cupcakes from Pam's blog. I made 60+ large butterflies that had to be "painted" so it literally took all night/morning and about 8 hours more to finish the butterflies and cupcakes.
My cooking tragedies
Tons and tons of it. The most memorable was the time I was sanitizing Josceline's baby bottles with boiling water. I fell asleep and woke up to a horrible smell.
