I am married to a FABULOUS man! He is my everything! I have a beautiful daughter who always makes me smile! I love being a mommy and a homemaker, yet years ago I would have never thought I would! I enjoy working out and taking walks with my daughter.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts!!! Who doesn't love cookies, brownies, cupcakes, fudge, breads and cakes...?!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always used to bake cookies for Santa, like many families. Now I am sharing that tradition with my daughter and we bake cookies on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
My husband loves meat, so when we switched to ground turkey because it was healthier, it was a hard transition for him. He loves it now, but I was having a hard time developing recipes. I always used cookbooks and the net to find recipes. One night, I decided that I have cooked so many things and watched so many cooking shows, that I could make something on my own. That was the nite "Mamma Mia Misty's Meatballs" were born. I get lots of requests for them!!
My cooking tragedies
I always get upset when something doesn't turn out how I expected, but I bake often for my husbands staff which they love. I had called him at work and the lady who answered the phone recognized my voice. She begged for some cookies, so I told her I would have my husband bring some in the next day. I made my awesome Monster Cookie batter. I baked 4 different batches and NONE of them turned out...I don't know what happened. It was sad to dump the rest in the trash! The staff was pretty dissappointed the next day!
