I'm a secondary education graduate student at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas, my mom, sister, and I bake Christmas cookies and candies while listening to Christmas Carols. We always make Date Balls, Reese's Balls, White Fudge, and Martha Washingtons. In recent years, we have made Turtles, Divinity, and Chocolate Covered Cherries and experimented with many other recipes. Christmas candy making is an event I always look forward to each year.
My cooking triumphs
My mom has never been able to make Divinity and every time I ever asked, she would tell me it was too hard. Last Christmas I attempted it, and it was perfect on the first try.
