Mother of two who loves life! I work hard and play hard and have found a new love for running. Instead of having a book in my car just in case, I now have a pair of sneakers.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, casseroles, mexican food, appetizers, breakfast foods. Did I mention Desserts??
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals. A time when everyone came together to cook, and share food. Maybe even brag a little. Contests were usually added to motivate everyone to try their best. Pie's anyone?
My cooking triumphs
This happens every time I successfully make a meal for my family. My husband does most of the cooking. I've surrendered and now join him as a soux chef, chopping and assisting behind him. I triumph in the sweets I create from a basic cookie to a rich dessert.
My cooking tragedies
My son wanted a wizard hat cake for his 8 year old "crazy hat" party. The cake looked pretty cool but you'd never guess it was a wizard hat...but if anyone ever needs a volcano cake, I've got that covered!
