Wife, and mother of one, soon to be two. I am a SAHM with a passion for cooking just about anything! I have been cooking since I was in grade school. I am self taught for the most part, with of course some influence from my parents.
My favorite things to cook
I love making baked goods/pastries. I love making anything really, but nothing beats a nice cake, sweet bread, or pie. I just have a passion for cooking all things though.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Xmas morning we have green & red colored pancakes shaped like gingerbread men. =)
Every now and then on a cool night, my husband and I make a huge pot of gumbo together. Can't wait til the kids are old enough to help out! I really look forward to teaching my daughter how to cook.
My cooking triumphs
One of my favorite cooking projects was a cake I made for my daughter's first birthday. It was an Elmo cake. She just LOVED it so much!
My cooking tragedies
I don't have many, honestly. I'm a bit of a natural, and not to toot my own horn. However, several years ago, I decided to try cooking some stir fry using tofu instead of meat. I had never used tofu before in a recipe, and didn't know it needed drained first. Oops! Yeah, that came out terrible. The dogs wouldn't even eat it! LOL I've since learned how to properly prepare it, and it is delightful! Hehe
