About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom of twin toddlers and my hiding spot is the kitchen. My moms way of cooking was always open the bag and throw it in the oven so I think I must have gotten my love of cooking from my granny!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake because it's usually something just because I want to and not because someone is hungry.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma used to have christmas eve dinner with all the fixin's and no matter how hard we try it just can't be replicated. I also remember sitting in the corner of my grandmas kitchen "helping" make cookies. I would love to start making memories with my kids if I could just learn a little patience.
My cooking triumphs
I made a cake from scratch...
My cooking tragedies
I made a cake from scratch... haha My first thanksgiving turkey I tried to make gravy but I didn't know about all the grease yuck. And there was that time i served my in-laws a raw chicken. Thats just to name a few i'm sure i could think of plenty more.

Carrot Cake III
mmmm so good. I halved the recipe and made cupcakes 12 of them for 30 minutes. Also, I didn't have any oil so I melted half butter and used the other half applesauce.
