Happily married since 2008 (haha... SOOOO long ago!). I work part time and go to school full time. I hope to become an occupational therapist! I would have done culinary school, but I cherish my evenings and weekends with my husband and want to keep them open for him. So, I indulge him with my cooking experiences! He loves me for it!
My favorite things to cook
Anything NEW! I love trying new recipes and finding a new reason to expand my spice cabinet!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Me doing all of the cooking... haha... but it's true! I love it when a family's meal success is in my hands. The pressure is exhilarating! And I rarely disappoint!
My cooking triumphs
Tamales! Someone told me it wasn't possible... 30 dozen tamale's later, I had a cooler of Christmas Gifts and a big "I TOLD YOU SO!"
My cooking tragedies
Deviled Eggs 30 minutes before guest arrival. The eggs wouldn't peel without taking hunks of eggs with it AND I didn't have paprika! So I "cleverly" substituted chili powder... BIG MISTAKE!
