38 yr. old Massage Therapist with a 4 yr, old and a husband. My favorite thing to do is cook as well as try new things. Unfortunately I don't get to indulge that as often as I would like to.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE LOVE LOVE to make homemade pizza, and then anything I am cooking for the first time is always fun for me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When my mother would cook, there was ALWAYS a house full of uncles,cousins,aunts,and any family that happen to be in the area at the time, so just food and togetherness have always gone hand in hand for me and now I love to entertain with my friends at the island counter and me at the stove. Good Times!!!
My cooking triumphs
I haven't actually had my greatest triumph yet because I am afraid to try it, but I have everything I need to make that great (perfect, if you will)cheesecake. I'm not the greatest baker, so i've been a little nervous about it and yeah it's been a few years coming but things like this take time, its my favorite dessert, and if I mess it up I think I will be devastated, so be patient with me.
My cooking tragedies
As much as I love cooking, baking is not my forte. There have been 2 instances that I have made the cream cheese pound cake like my mother used to, but for as many times as I have tried it, well. . . its really just sad. I am a firm believer in homemade (NO BOX CAKES HERE) so it is a little important that I can at least get the cake thing right a few more than 2 times.
