I'm married to a wonderful man and we have five young children!! Needless to say, our lives are busy but fun! And there sure are plenty of mouths to cook and bake for!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking from scratch! Cookies, cakes, brownies...I also love using my slow cooker and love making casseroles, although the hubby doesn't like casseroles too much.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Before I got married, my grandma taught me how to cook. We'd have my husband (then fiance) over to her house every Friday night where I'd prepared a meal from scratch. BOY, was he spoiled! He still is spoiled!
My cooking triumphs
I have tweaked a slow cooker beef barley soup recipe until it is distinctively my own. We have it weekly here (even in the summer), and the kids all love it!
My cooking tragedies
I've had plenty of tragedies from dumping everything on the floor in the midst of cooking to leaving ingredients out to using baking soda instead of baking powder. (YUK!)
