I'm a wife, mother of 4, & grandmother of 3. I love to cook but sometimes need help in the creative meal ideas, which is why I love this site. I started baking within the past couple of years & so far so good!
My favorite things to cook
I can't say that I like cooking one particular thing over another. I just want whatever I cook to come out to be more than just edible. If I had to pick just one thing I would say "cupcakes." To me they're better than a cake, you can get the same decorative effect as with a cake without the strain on my wrists.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken & dressing, a holiday dish that is above all else a must have, always!
My cooking triumphs
New York style cheese cake (which I got from this site too, but I made a gram cracker crust of my own recipe) This dish came out so perfect I could have cried from joy. Everyone loved it & it is a highly requested dessert for our holiday gatherings
My cooking tragedies
Sweet potatoes. Ugh! My husband & children love sweet potatoes but I'm allergic. So, one day I decided to try my hand at it but I couldn't taste it. Needless to say my husband said to me "babe, you know I love you right?, but please never make this again!" I could only laugh because he was so serious & yet still trying not hurt my feelings. Too funny!!!
