I am a 47 year old, married, RN with 5 children. My oldest 2 are in college and my youngest is in 1st grade. My husband and I have been married 21 years. I work part time as an IV Nurse.
My favorite things to cook
I love crock pot cooking, grilling and baking. I also love making soups and breads in the winter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A tradition at my house is to bake & decorate 200 sugar cookies with all the kids at Christmas. We then package them up and take them to all our neighbors. It's a real treat!
My cooking triumphs
An absolutely beautiful, completely edible, flower box cake for Mother's Day.
My cooking tragedies
I put way too much brownie batter in the pan and it overflowed into my oven. By the time I noticed, the smoke alarm was going off and the house was quickly filling with smoke. I had to get my three very small children out of the smoke but it was a blizzard outside. I loaded them up and took them to McDonalds. At McDonalds, I broke the key off in the ignition of my car and had to be rescued by my hubby. What a disastrous Valentine's Day surprise for my sweet husband!!
