I am a wife and mother of 2 adult grown girls. I love to cook but make the biggest mess doing so. I have been an insurance agent for the last 8 years, hoping to wind down some so that I can cook some more
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, side dishes, appetizers
My favorite family cooking traditions
We tend to have the same meals for Thanksgiving and Christmas every year by demand. I try to incorporate diffferent side dishes for a little change.
My cooking triumphs
I finally have all the gadgets that make cooking easier. Up until this last year I preferred to cut everything up by hand with a dull knife. I got the Professional Kitchenaid, a food processor and some awesome knives. Cooking now takes me 1/2 the time.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count. Before I used the computer as my cookbook, I would leave items out all the time. I think that my worse tragedy though was when I was dating my husband, I decided to make him a meal, we had beef stroganoff, homemade rolls, salad and a cheesecake that had 8 packages of cream cheese. Needless to say, he was very gracious but full. He still teases me about the "heavy" meal to this day.
