I am married and a mother of 5 children ranging in age from 10 to 20 years old. I am a stay at home mom and I have been homeschooling my children for 12 years. As a family, we enjoy going to Walt Disney World about every 2 years. We do a lot of things together and are all very close. I enjoy photography and scrapbooking my photos - especially photos of our family vacations or day trips. I also enjoy card making.
I didn't start baking until I got married almost 23 years ago. The first year was interesting, but I've been cooking ever since and learned to love it.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are desserts. I also like putting on parties and big holiday meals. I will admit I have come a long way baking pies. I found out when I married my husband that he loves pies so I had to learn quickly how to make pie crust. In my early days of frustration, many crusts went sailing across the kitchen. I am happy to report that I can make wonderful pie crust now and not one has sailed across the kitchen in over 22 years!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making Christmas cookies with my children as well as teaching my teen daughters how to cook.
