Jade, thisisme!!
About this Cook
I am a mom of three beautiful children and two wonderful step children. I am an absolute free spirit, and have always enjoyed trying new things in the kitchen. I am a true foodie at heart,and have been cooking and baking since I was a child.
My favorite things to cook
I love anything that tastes good!!! I love hearty family meals but also love things that are simple and practical when you have to take care of a large family. I love to bake, and my top favorite things to cook (and eat)are pies, and asian cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am a true believer in family and the institution of it.Most of my recipes come from my grandmothers kitchen and what I ate growing up as a kid.I love the fact that I can give my own children the same kinds of memories and feelings that I experienced growing up as a kid and I strive to re-create that for my own children. I love the seasonal items like picking strawberries in early summer and pears in the fall,tomatoes fresh from the garden, jams and jelly making, apple picking,pie making and etc. These things filled my childhood with great smells, tastes and memories, and is what I base my ideas and meals from to make for my own family now.
My cooking triumphs
hmm, dont have any triumphs, per se but I have "mastered" the art of pie and homemade pie crust making and also (since becoming an member)I have become quite good at creating and changing recipes for the better to fit my family without creating too many kitchen disasters, so as of this moment, I would say that this is my numero uno kitchen triumph!
My cooking tragedies
not too many, I have been fortunate enough to not have to go through too many blunders, although I did recently ruin my all day crockpot baked mac n cheese, so I guess I can add that to this list!

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
GREAT GREAT GREAT...compliments any cake but is my favorite to use on the sour cream chocolate chip cake...absolutely awesome!! Only thing different that I do is cream the sugar, vanilla, and cheese together then add in the heavy cream and beat till peaks form...much easier and you dont have to worry about your whipped cream going flat.

Favorite Popcorn Balls
made carmel corn not pop corn balls, I agree with the other womans review who said the same thing. It was good but next time I Am going to only use 1 cup of popcorn instead of 2. I also used the colored sugar to make it colored and it worked really well but it absolutely makes carmel corn not popcorn balls!
