I love to cook and am always trying new recipes. I cook home cooked meals daily, bake regularly and love to entertain. I have 13+ crock pots and servers and like to use them all when I host large parties and Thanksgiving dinners.
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of dessert. I love to bake and make desserts for my family and friends. I always cook to taste and don't mind getting dirty when making a good meal. I am humble enough to take constructive criticism and suggestions for a better and/or easier dish. I also dabble in ethnic foods and try to mix things up as often as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies at Christmas time for family and friends. Cooking Thanksgiving meals for my family and hosting a Memorial day cookout each year.

My cooking tragedies
Chocolate truffles, Salmon, regular tarts, Hot & sour soup, scones, stuffed mushrooms, German food and Sausage & cabbage soup.
