Stay at home mom of five kiddos and have a great guy who puts up with all of me...good, bad and the ugly, lol. I love cooking for my family and am so happy when they really enjoy something I make! I love to cook foods from different cultures and cannot cook any meat but chicken no matter how hard I try :(
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! The science behind it is really cool to me!! Taking a little of this and a little of that and voila, you get something amazing!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday cooking is something I love and so does my family, it's all the standards but it's comforting for us all. My Mom used to make us roast beef and brown macaroni and I have tried to pass this on to my kids but as stated previously, meat and me cannot seem to get along, lol!
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate chip cookies. I tried for years to make them and they always came out really bad and then I used a recipe from here and I finally have conquered my cookie failure :)
My cooking tragedies
I made some Paula Deen sweet potato balls for Thanksgiving and they turned out so gross and they fell apart in the pan..ugh..no one ate them,not that I blame them lol. And that is just one of many, many cooking failures..but I keep on trucking!!
