I Bake All His Birthday Cakes!
He Loves Mom's Sauce!
Little Old Me
About this Cook
I find that life never leaves me enough time to bake as much as I'd like to. I've been a cook my whole life ( I had an easy bake oven) and I find that as I get older my need to try new things and do thing I never knew I could becomes more thriving. I'm a mom to a wonderful 6 year old boy, who unlike most 6 year olds is not picky. He's my biggest fan and my number one taste tester.
My favorite things to cook
I love the BBQ, I think mainly because my family is all portugese and we grew up loving it. Second to that is my love for baking! It's my passion! I bake everything and anything. I bake for work, for my sons daycare, our home is only filled with baked goods now! Everyone says they want me to stop because they seem to all be gainning weight!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family is huge on Christmas!!! I love Christmas cooking and baking. Its the only time of year in our house that we dont worry about our pants fitting right. We do turkey, ham, and fish as our main dishes. There are tons of portugese thing we make (family secerts) and then of course the pies and other desserts. I always find I dont gain that much and I think its because I'm always running around cooking, baking and cleaning.
My cooking triumphs
I made pie for the first time, and I decided to make it for my B/F's family picnic (It was the first time I had met his whole family), they loved it. In fact his grande father said I cant come visit unless I bring pies with me. I made it all from scratch so it felt good inside to know it was good!
