I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Illinois. I met my husband soon after I graduated college at Denny's! He was in the Army so I became an Army wife and started the Army lifestyle. We have one daughter, Emma and move constantly! It's an exciting life!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking...in fact I just pulled pumpkin muffins from the oven! Cookies, cakes, muffins, breads, you name it, and I'll try to bake it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember when I was a kid my parents and my aunts and uncles would send all the kids to my grandparents house for a week during the summer, while the adults went on vacation. My grandma would let me help her cook all the time and it was so much fun!
My cooking triumphs
Homemade cinnamon rolls. My mom and I made them together on Christmas Eve. Neither of us had ever tried baking cinnamon rolls before, and they turned out amazing! We were so scared they wouldn't rise or be hard as rocks.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to make a cheddar soup,and the recipe called for some beer. The final product was so disgusting I had to throw it out. I will never again try to make anything that calls for beer.
