I love to cook & take pride in creating my own recipes. I am a stay at home mother of 2 girls-a 2 year old & a 1 year old. I am admittedly not the best baker but I am slowly learning. I try to buy as little as possible prepackaged food & make everything that I can from scratch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to get my 2 girls involved & helping as much as they can.
My cooking triumphs
I conquered Junior's Devil's Food Cheesecake. By far the best dessert I have ever eaten!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 7 or 8 months pregnant I made a chicken pot pie that I had made several times before. I read the recipe wrong & put 2 C chicken broth in the mix rather than the 1/2 C it called for. I didn't realize my mistake until I started serving it at the table. I was so upset & embarrassed & being pregnant, I started crying. My husband ate half of the pot pie & said it was the best one he has had. Months later (after I was no longer pregnant) he confessed that he had only eaten it to make me feel better :)
