I am a 38 yr old mother of 3 gorgeous children ages 17, 8 and 19 months. I love to laugh and have a good time. I work parttime outside my home and I love spending time with my kids and husband.
My favorite things to cook
I am all about the comfort foods.. slow cooker recipes, delicious casseroles, heartwarming soups, I love making these things. I love it when my kids tell people their favorite food is something that I make as opposed to pizza or fast food. I feel so proud.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mothers Turkey and Stuffing that she makes at Thanksgiving. Her macaroni and cheese is awesome, and she makes this Buttermilk Pie that is amazing. My mom is an excellent cook as long as she doesnt try too many new tricks she saw on the Food Network lol.
My cooking triumphs
Well.. I think my best recipe that I make is Cottage Potatoes with Ham. The casserold dish is always scraped clean. Last Halloween my husband and I threw a Halloween Party for my 7 yr. old sons 2nd grade class and it was a huge success. I make punch w/ dry ice and floating eyeballs, I make witch finger cookies, a meatball worm, a Bug cake, plus some other ghoulish treats and it was a huge success. I was very proud.
My cooking tragedies
Last Halloween I attempted to make these meringue "Bones" for a Halloween Party I was throwing for my kids. I am not good with meringue, unless its SUPPOSED to be a liquid.
