I am a wife and mother of 3 children. I grew up in Mason City, IL, but moved to North Carolina 7 years ago.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy trying new recipes and love tasting different foods. I love my comfort foods like mac 'n cheese. Still, enjoy unique foods like sushis and Mexican chorizo.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have to make Korean egg roll every so often. Plus, my mom's gingersnap cookies are out of this world! Cooking gives me such special moments with my kids.
My cooking triumphs
I loved learning how to make a perfectly juicy Thanksgiving turkey. Getting my gingersnaps to crinkle perfectly on top is definitely a highlight, too.
My cooking tragedies
I make good homemade mashed potatoes, usually. My first Thanksgiving I added too much milk and my potatoes were so runny. My in-laws don't ever let me forget that.
