I recently quit my job to be a stay at home mom. My mom is my inspiration for cooking. She was a stay at home mom, too, and we spent a lot of time in the kitchen while I was growing up. I hope my children enjoy cooking and baking as much as I do.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things. I am looking for healthy but quick options. My family is trying to reduce the amount of preservatives and sodium we eat and love baking fresh bread (yes, with a bread machine, but it is still fun and delicious!).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother's coffee cake is the best ever!
My cooking triumphs
I searched high and low for a chocolate cheesecake recipe for my husband. I had never made a cheesecake before, but my first try was a total success. We now have it every year for Valentine's Day and his birthday in August.
My cooking tragedies
I have ruined so many pots, pans, utensils, etc just by trying to do too many things at once. Guess I should learn to multi task better!
