I was born in Louisiana and lived there until my mom remarried into the military. As a military brat I've had the opportunity to live all over...from Louisiana, Guam, California, Florida, Mississippi, and now Colorado! I'm a southerner and like my tea SWEET!! I'm a wife and also a mom to a busy 2year old! I work full time outside the home so family time is precious to me. I feel lucky to have a husband that likes to cook and bake as well so it doesn't always fall solely on my shoulders. I've been trying to get back into the kitchen a lot more lately. I love finding new recipes to try, although I can be picky, I'm getting better as I've just left the 20's behind!
My favorite things to cook
BBQ, Mexican, Italian, and anything that I can throw into the crockpot. I love coming home and smelling dinner awaiting me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up I remember decorating cookies at Christmas and have started this my own family now. Candy Cane Cookies are a must :)
My cooking tragedies
Lol, living at high altitude has it ups and downs (literally)! The one that sticks out the most was when I was in a rush making cupcakes for my hubby for his birthday and poured all the cake mix into 12 muffin cups instead of doing 2 batches of 12! When I pulled the muffin pan out it was one big sheet of cake!! They tasted fine but sure were hard to ice after I had to cut the tops off and weren't pretty either. I don't think I'll live that one down.
