Right now I'm cooking for my three guys - one husband, one toddler, one infant, and also for the company we have over regularly. My husband is a pastor so we have people in our home often. I have no professional training, except for two Wilton Cake courses - which were lots of fun.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake - especially pies and other dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my mom always cooked family meals and lots of food for company. I love to follow in those footsteps.
My cooking triumphs
I'm really happy with the time I made homemade pies for 40+ people in July for our open house when we moved into our first home.
My cooking tragedies
Two main tragedies stick in my mind - the night my husband grabbed the cayenne pepper instead of cinnamon and I sprinkled it all over the apple coffee cake I had to take to work the next day, and the time I burnt the chocolate sauce and didn't know it until I poured it over the bundt cake and tasted it (I had to spit it out - it tasted like dirt).
