I love anything having to do with creativity. I have three wonderful children ranging from 9 to 1 and I am now a stay at home mom and full time student with the University of Phoenix. One of my favorite calming methods is to cook.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are off the top of my head creations. When I get too stressed out, I just go in the kitchen and start chopping stuff up. I have never made anything that my family doesn't love when I get in creative mind set and zone out in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love all holiday cooking and winter is always a favorite in my household. Winter is full of rich hearty soups and homemade breads and sweet treats.
My cooking triumphs
I have discovered that I have a flare for exotic cooking and international dishes. Once I discovered the basics I just went with it and Miso soup is one of my favorites.
My cooking tragedies
It is a really good idea to have containers clearly marked while baking. When I was a teenager, my mom bought everything in bulk, salt cookies are not nearly as good as sugar cookies.
