I am a 33 year old single mother of two little girls. Adrienne (10) and Alexis(6). I love to cook for my girls and my oldest helps out a lot. She enjoys cooking and has her own cook books and an easy bake oven.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my first love. I will bake anything!! Casseroles are my next favorite. I try to make everything healthy as well as yummy. My girls aren't picky so I am able to experiment with all types of foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies during the holidays is my favorite. My mother and I have to plan which cookies to make because there are so many that the family requests! I also love to make birthday cakes for family members.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest triumph is through my daughter Adrienne. At 8 years old she made lasagna and a caramel pound cake with my only helping with the dangerous parts (using the oven). I am so proud of her! She made an excellent meal and she said she learned it all from me!
My cooking tragedies
My mother taught me to make a caramel glaze for my pound cakes. I made it perfect with her watching but when I tried it at home........I burned the sugar 4 times! The house smell of burned sugar was so bad that we had to open all the doors even with the heat of summer!
