Mama to 2 girls, 4.5yr & 3mo. LOVE staying home with my girls. Wedding Photographer in the Indianapolis area, like to sew - on a baby sling kick right now.... Love to read - especially historical fiction. Hubby is an IT geek - rather picky - so cooking for him can be a challenge becuz I love to try new things! But I have elicited a promise from him that he will at least TRY it!!! My 4 yr old eats anything though! She loves kale!!!
My favorite things to cook
Ummm...anything sweet?! My challenge is meat - not getting it too dry, and grilling - hard to find the right temp/time. I am bound and determined to figure it out...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster stew and puppy chow at New Years... Copying my mother by baking tons of Christmas cookies and giving them out... Making WAY TOO MUCH food every holiday.... Cinnamon rolls on Christmas morn.
My cooking triumphs
Whoopie Pies when I was in highschool. (whoo! but my mom was upset with the mess it made though!!!) Figuring out to sift my baking powder and baking soda - I HATE tasting little lumps that don't get mixed in.
My cooking tragedies
Umm... where to start... Leaving a glass baking dish on the stove and turning the burner on - it EXPLODED. Making a South Beach recipe of tiramisu and I doubled it but didn't double all the ingredients I think - it was not good. Subbing baking pwdr for soda or vice versa in Home Ec in high school. Those muffins tasted HORRIBLE! You only do that once!!!
