About this Cook
I am 31 years old, and mom of 2 beautiful children. I am a seamstress extraordinaire at my own company, "Lucy Jane Pennybright". I sew costumes for historic reenactments, theatre and fantasy/convention style needs, as well as soft toys and dolls for local arts festivals. I love music and am always singing and dancing in the kitchen. :)
My favorite things to cook
I am our family's confectioner. I love to bake desserts and cookies. I am the family Queen of Christmas Cookies! I also love to try new recipes that I haven't tried before.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make Wassail during the Holidays. I'm also getting a tradition of once a month tea time going with several of my friends.
My cooking triumphs
I only have two triumphs to share, but I think they are both good. Once I had some friends over for an informal Sunday lunch and made Polynesian Pork Chops. They were fantastic and everyone was really impressed! The second occasion was when I had a good friend from school over whom I hadn't seen in a long time. I made a Chicken and Broccoli dish that is wrapped in a pastry braid. It was great! The hard part was that I was 8 months pregnant with my youngest daughter and had Braxton Hicks (false or practice) contractions the whole time!
My cooking tragedies
Thankfully I can't think of any cooking tragedies at the moment, but with trying new recipes all the time, I'm sure someday there will be a first! :)
