I am a married stay-at-home-mom of six. My husband and I have been together for 17 years. I have recently returned to school to finish my education--working on my B.A. I love to cook, especially baking, and my husband and children are my biggest fans =]
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake everything from breads, pies, cookies to fancy cakes! I love Thanksgiving cooking too. I have been told that my lasagna and eggplant parm. is surpassable by no one =]
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is a feast at my house and the most anticipated side dish is my cranberry-sausage stuffing. Also, I do Christmas brunch with a large selection of breakfast treats.
My cooking triumphs
I had made roast leg of lamb for the first time. I put cloves of garlic on the bottom shelf of the oven to cook with the lamb and then made garlic spread for toasted French bread. It was really delicious. The lamb was cooked to perfection.
My cooking tragedies
I still have not mastered eggnog. The last time I made it, the kids wanted to know why it had lumps =] And my jelly apples could have been used as weapons they were so hard.
