I am a wife, mother of two girls (5 and 2), and a public defender. I am also an active member of my church and in my children's school - as well as getting involved in their ever-expanding list of activities!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook things that are healthy, easy, and QUICK, but I don't want the results to seem thrown-together. I also love to cook more indulgent "homey" meals and desserts, just not for every meal!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband's side of our family (his parents and his sister's family) all live in town with us. We get together for family dinner every Sunday after church with us rotating homes (and cooking responsibilities) every week.
I am also a member of a book club that I describe as "Supper Club with Books" since we rotate in homes with cooking responsibilities as well.
Cooking for Thanksgiving - with every family member bringing a side dish to share - remains my favorite of them all!
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting my husband's family pound cake recipe.
Getting something on the table every night!
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting to use self-rising flour when making biscuits.
The memorable time the dog ate a huge chunk out of the banana bread I was planning to serve for Book Club brunch.
