I am a single mother to 2 beautiful, fun, loving children, and I have an incredible boyfriend that tolerates me every day! I love him for that! I love love love to cook, but sometimes between my full time job and the kiddos it can be crunch time. Cooking is my free therapy!
My favorite things to cook
I love to throw anything on the grill outside any time of year! Lasagna is a family favorite, along with anything that has to do with desert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The kids and I always roast pumpkin seeds close to Halloween, rolled sugar cookie cut-outs for the holidays, and sweet sun tea is a must during the summer.
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner for my large family back in 2008. My mother usually does this, but she was ill, so I took the wheel and went with it. Secretly, I received alot of compliments on how much better mine was! =)
My cooking tragedies
For my boyfriend's birthday this month, I attempted to make a double layer lemon cake, with buttercream frosting, all from scratch. When I got done with it, it looked like pretty pathetic. My mother is the cake decorator in the family! He still ate it, bless his little heart!
