Married for almost 16 years to my High School Sweetheart, I have 3 busy boys ages 14, 10 & 8, Homeschool while working fulltime, have been a nurse for 7 years, and I love, love, LOVE to cook!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are of course Italian and Southern foods, but I make it my mission to introduce my family to lots of international food. My passion is desserts...its what I excel at :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have "traditions" I guess, but since we are in the south we always have turnip greens, fried chicken, black eyed peas and corn bread on New Year's Eve. I also always fix lasagna for Christmas Eve dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make the perfect cheesecake! Also, recently perfecting my coconut cake recipe :)
My cooking tragedies
Don't really have tragedies. There is ALWAYS a way to salvage what you have. Recently I was whipping cream for a cake topping. I got distracted and the cream curdled into butter! What did I do?? I drained as much liquid as I could, added another stick of butter and made butter cream! I got rave reviews :)
