I grew up and live in upstate New York with my husband and two daughters. I like decorating my home, inside and out, especially for all the holidays. In the summertime I love spending time outside in my yard, and sitting in my gazebo on warm summer nights.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking cookies, brownies, breads, and cakes. Cupcakes are adorable too! For family meals, I like making meals in the crock pot, or easy chicken casserole dishes. Whatever is quick and easy is the way to go!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays are favorite times for our families to get together. We always celebrate Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas with extended family. In the summer, we enjoy cooking outdoors on the grill with chicken, burgers, roasted corn on the cob, baked beans, pasta salads, and iced tea!
My cooking triumphs
Christmas baked ham, scalloped potatoes, green bean casserole and corn, and of course hot rolls
My cooking tragedies
I'm pretty careful and not a huge risk-taker when it comes to cooking therefore there have been no memorable tragedies in that regard.
