I'm a wife to an amazing man and a mom to three great kids, ages 8, 3 and 1. We serve the
Lord and are so grateful for the many blessings He has bestowed upon our lives.
My 3 year old has celiac disease, so I'm always looking for great gluten free recipes that don't require tons of expensive extra ingredients. I LOVE to cook and bake but am usually challenged for time due to raising my children and working a part time job for my church as the worship leader and treasurer, so AR has been so helpful!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake just about anything, but these days most of what I bake is gluten free. It has been a real challenge but I'm learning a lot and it's getting easier :) I'm really into healthy eating habits, so I cook a lot from scratch and try to avoid processed foods as much as possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I still use my grandmother's recipe for banana bread (adapted, now, to be free of gluten of course) and it gets rave reviews every time. My dad tells me that I'm beginning to cook more and more like her every day which is a huge compliment!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 10 people one year by myself and I was very pleased with the results. The turkey alone was my triumph since it was the first year I cooked one but I was happy with how everything turned out.
I'm pretty much happy any time my husband raves about a meal I've made :) That's the best reward of all!
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked a chicken pot pie for dinner which took me over an hour to prepare, and it pretty much exploded in the oven because I used too much filling! There are many others as well, especially with the gluten free cooking :)
