I am a hair stylist, mama of one (so far) and wife. And daughter, sister, and I could go on... I spend my days with my little guy, working on various creative projects that rarely get finished in any sort of timely manner. I love looking for new recipes and dreaming up new menus - cooking is a fairly recent passion I've procured... I am not a detail person, so I throw in a little of this, a little of that... not one to go totally by the book. I am learning this doesn't go well with baking unless you really know what you're doing, so I am ready to explore that realm!
My favorite things to cook
Anything new and fresh... or chocolatey. I am currently obsessed with the recipes on pioneerwoman.com, which means I also need to obsess myself with the gym.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We all divide holiday dishes and make them our own so we have everybody's individual take on traditional foods!
My cooking triumphs
Creating new things in the kitchen and getting rave reviews from my husband.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking seriously a few years ago, I was "toasting" some nuts for a dish and managed to catch them on fire TWICE!
