I'm a 20 something year old mom and I have many interest. I like creative activities, and cooking has recently become a passion of mine. I used to not enjoy cooking and looked at it as a chore. I have been cooking regular everyday things for years that satisfied, but didn't thrill. But now I'm getting into cooking as a(n unexpected) hobby that I actually enjoy (I never thought I would). I really like reading and reviewing new recipes and enjoy putting dishes and meals together now. I also like receiving feedback from my dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that makes people smile.
Foods that are not only tasty, but are also beautiful or interesting to look at.
Cupcakes with my son and daughter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking for gatherings, holidays and special occasions. It gives me a reason to try new and exciting recipes and show off my growing skills.
My favorite family cooking tradition is cooking with my two children. We always have fun, and I enjoy teaching them things that will be with them forever. They really enjoy it as well.
My cooking triumphs
Making Thanksgiving dinner for my extended family 3 years counting. The first, I had a seafood themed Thanksgiving that went over well. The next two were traditional turkey and stuffing type meals, but i had exciting recipes that really amazed and made the day really memorable.
My cooking tragedies
woah, too many to count. There has been many a time when the smoke detector got a workout when I was in the kitchen. There has been many times when egg shells have became the unintended mystery ingredient that added "texture" and crunch in a dish. There has been many times where I have designated a meal "Cajun" due to its... darkened exterior. I can go on, but, I have learned and have become a better cook from allll of these... tragedies.
