Im a mousy little so-and-so born and raised in the midwest who lives for -and cooks for- a wonderful man, 2 great kids, a crazy dog, 5 cats ('nuff said) and one fat mouse. Life is good!
My favorite things to cook
i love to cook in general but my favorite areas are baking and comfort foods. I 'healthy up' what i can and diet tomorrow for what i cant. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions involve the holidays - my Mom was French Canadian and from her, i have the basis for my French Meat Pie recipes and my standard breaded stuffing. My Dad is Spanish/Native American and from my Grandma on that side, I have the basis for my Tamale recipe and also cornbread stuffing.
My cooking triumphs
My fruited pies are the crowning glory of my recipe box.
My cooking tragedies
Still working on getting the perfect flaky biscuit :)
