I love to cook and bake for my family and friends, and am constantly on the lookout for recipes that use common ingredients and are palate pleasing for our small children, yet offer classic flavors with unique twists that appeal to adults as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas treat making with my mom, three sisters and sister-in-law all spread out in my parents' kitchen, visiting and baking up a storm; baking with our young daughters and providing them with an early appreciation of the gift of making home-baked goodies for family and friends
My cooking tragedies
My habit of doing too many things at once nearly every time I make potato soup and giving it an unintended "smoky" flavor by not stirring it often enough!
