I am a mother of 5 boys. My specialty is making something from nothing; and not just something, but something wonderful. I can never make the same thing twice because I don't follow recipes very well. I have tried lately to write down what I make if someone really likes it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything for my family. I'm not a big fan of pastries though. I love to make beautiful desserts and I make wedding cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is my all time favorite Holiday. I love to prepare everything in the entire meal, myself, from start to finish and it is a week long ordeal. I remember this day being the BeSt in my family.
My cooking triumphs
I make awesome pies with beautiful flaky crusts.
My cooking tragedies
I burn grilled cheese sandwiches and rolls all the time. I can't stand around, doing nothing, waiting for turn or retrieve.
