I'm a single mom of 2 teenage boys, trying to stretch my dollars, but still enjoy what makes me really happy...To Bake!
My favorite things to cook
Chelsea buns, cookies, cakes...sometimes I enjoy cooking meals,I always cook; but that joy only comes when I know that the kids love it!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering pastry, since my Mom passed my sisters and friends come to me for pastry. This makes the sometimes back breaking work of cooking for parties worth it...I feel needed! (Or am I their mule?) hmmmm.
My cooking tragedies
Chelsea buns have given me nightmares, I can't count how many different recipes I have tried, that I have either botched or they just don't work for me. A little embarrassing when they smell divine while they are cooking, but come out hard as a rock!!!
