I'm a stay-at-home mom that loves her husband and son. :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake although I'm not particularly good at it yet. With a young son I am always looking for quick and easy recipes with a bit of a gourmet flair.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to always make pie and cookies at holidays and although I haven't necessarily established that habit myself as of yet, those memories remain some of my favorite.
My cooking triumphs
I think my best cooking triumph thus far has been when my sister-in-law asked me to make cookies for our family Christmas gathering. Specifically she asked if I could find a recipe for the cornflake cookies my husband's grandmother used to make. I found Evelyn's Cornflake Cookies on Allrecipes, and it continues to be a favorite even now.
My cooking tragedies
My latest cooking tragedy was in preparing a Crock Pot Chicken and Stuffing recipe for my family in which I forgot a tasty thickening ingredient and it turned out soupy and not as tasty as the last time I made it. It passed the taste test okay, but I was still a bit disappointed in myself.
