I love being a busy stay-at-home Mom! My husband is a hospital CEO and I have two children, a boy and a girl. I enjoy volunteering at the kids' schools, at church, and at the hospital. I love to follow my kids around to their various activities, garden, run, swim, read, and of course, COOK!
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite things to cook are comfort foods--casseroles, crock-pot dishes, meat and potatoes, etc. I also love to bake (especially anything sweet,) and to can my homegrown fruits and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions include making pizza on Christmas Eve! I also enjoy making family recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation, including my Grandmother's recipes for Raisin Cream Pie and Sweet Pickles! I am having so much fun cooking with my daughter, who loves being in the kitchen!
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs include the many times I have hosted a big crowd for Thanksgiving Dinner. But my greatest "cooking triumphs" are when I'm able to be organized and creative enough to make something for dinner that the whole family enjoys!!!
My cooking tragedies
Goodness, I have had several cooking tragedies over the years... muffins without sugar, "hockey-puck" cookies, flat yeast breads, etc. But the tragedies just come along with the whole cooking experience, right?!
