I'm a wife and mom, have been married almost 18 years and have 2 great kids! My daughter is in high school and my son is in middle school. I love to cook and bake and when I find something new I can't wait to cook it to see if it'll be a dish we will love and love to keep!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything Italian, chicken, pasta, desserts, of course!, and anything that looks like something everyone will enjoy! I'm always willing to try :)))
My favorite family cooking traditions
Traditional things we make in our family would include... baked ziti and meatballs/sausage/pork, my Mom's awesome stuffing recipe every Thanksgiving , Pumpkin bread, gingerbread men cookies we make for Christmas, butter cookies, cookies of all different kinds!...cream cheese logs, pecan sandies, lemon snow bites, oatmeal, peanut butter, cracker jack, pecan pie, pb& jelly, roll out sugar, shortbread, and on and on!!! for Christmas time and ANY time!, and sooo many other things I can't even remember them all!
My cooking triumphs
Ok, I'd say my Thanksgiving dinner...I'm always so happy when that meal comes together and all the hard work finally pays off...love it when the table is full and the dinner comes out AWESOME, if I do say so myself! haha..
I'd say the greatest moments for me when it comes to cooking is when I get rave reviews from my family and friends after I have made something for them. It's truly a joy to see them enjoy my food!
My cooking tragedies
This is funny...I always say I can cook a dinner for 30 people but can't cook a hot dog or boil an egg! Seems whenever I'm cooking something very simple I burn it, the hot dogs in the oven when I broil them, or a boiling an egg on the stove...I either over boil and they are dry and crumbly or under boil and they are like a pouched egg! Uhhhh! hahah :)))
