I am a busy mom, real estate agent, and college student. Recipes that include everyday ingredients and easy instructions help reduce the pressure that's on me at the end of the day. My youngest child has a heart condition, so I make it a priority to substitute not-so-healthy ingredients with natural, wholesome choices instead. The easiest substitution is in baked goods....pureed pumpkin is delicious in brownies and applesauce keeps cakes super moist.
My favorite things to cook
I make it a point to make something different for dinner on most nights (time and energy permitting). I also enjoy baking and using the crock-pot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have been cooking since I was five-years old. I have been teaching my children to cook for the past year. Independence is very important and cooking for yourself is the first step!
