I have been married almost 29 years and have 2 sons aged 17 & 14. I like to be outdoors and since our summers are so short, we try to go hiking every weekend or visit friends on the farm. I love flowers, so my garden is a kaleidescope of color & variety, perennials being my personal favorites. I also love butterflies, so there are alot of butterfly favorites in the garden. This year we had an abundance of Monarchs & Swallowtails. My eldest son plays football, so from August to October our weekends are taken up with his games.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake, cheesecake & more cheesecake. I love cheesecake. I have become well known for them. I also love to experiment. Our boys will come home from school and I'll hear "oh oh, she's concocting again". There aren't very many leftovers in our house as they're transformed into something new the next day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any.
My cooking triumphs
The first time a pie crust turned out for me. Still working on that one though.
My cooking tragedies
When I had to make a trifle for a block party and the custard wouldn't set. It still tasted good, but watching the custard slosh around wasn't.
