I started cooking for my family when I was 8 years old. My mother was a single mom with two children and worked alot. I was quickly sick of my babysitters attempt at making my sister and I dinner and started to experiment. I didn't use too many recipes at first but then started to collect cookbooks as I got older. Now I am a huge baker! I love to bake everything.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love slow cooker recipes. I love BBQ pulled pork in the slow cooker or a nice chicken or pot roast. I enjoy baking more than anything...I like to give family and friends cookies, pies, cakes etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Thanksgiving dinner for my coworkers, we get the whole family involved and then usually cook turkey and all the fixings for about 50-60 people, they bring in salad, appetizers and desserts.
My cooking triumphs
Probably my pecan pie and my to die for chocolate cookies.
My cooking tragedies
There definitely have been a few!!!
