Proud wife of an ARMY Soldier and Mom of 3 great boys! Dalton 16, Chase 7, and Sarge (Our Pug) 2 :-)
Just recently began my cooking CRAZE!! I've always "Liked" to cook.. but became inspired after watching the movie "Julie & Julia" .. and now a "Like" has become a real JOY and PASSION in my life!
My favorite things to cook
I really LOVE to BAKE !! Everything from Appetizers to Zucchini. But if I HAVE to say a favorite.. it would be breads! The aromAhhhhh of fresh baked bread from the oven.. brings back a lot of childhood memories! And hopefully I do the same for my kiddos! :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up as an only child of a single mom (until high school) and so some of my BEST MEMORIES .. are the special moments my Mom and I shared in the kitchen! In particular .. Christmas Cookies!! Love You MOM !!!
My cooking triumphs
Many years ago.. baking with yeast scared me and always FAILED! But after many attempts .. I've conquered the YEAST DEMON and have RISEN (lol) to the occassion! I can make donuts .. like a champ now.. and boy oh boy are they DELISH !!
My cooking tragedies
It's stupid and oh so simple.. but for some reason PANCAKES.. they get the best of me every time!! I average about 3 good flapjacks out of 12! I can't flip a pancake to save my life.. *sigh* :-(
