I am a mother of two kids and am constantly trying new foods and trying to become healthier but still get my chocolate. I am a music teacher in my area and cross country coach. I have a passion for music and running.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are foreign foods. I don't like much of the American lifestyle of food choices. I love baking and making fancy cakes for my kids birthdays, and wedding cakes for the family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Dutch so anything dutch we do around the holidays. I don't do it very often because they like their butter.
My cooking triumphs
This year I baked a three tier fondant covered cake that looked rather remarkable for not having done it before and no classes to teach me.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a teenager I was steaming broccoli and steamed all the water out which resulted in burnt broccoli. It doesn't smell good when you burn it.
