I am a stay at home mom of 2 great kids. I have always enjoyed making people love me for 3 minutes while they eat one of my pastries and then hate me for the next few months while they worked it off their midsection!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts! I like showing off, I can't help it. I try to be creative, but most of the time one of the kids is pulling on my arm, so I don't always get it perfect.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just started with my MIL, we combine forces for Holidays, and we get together Thursdays and Sundays, and end up throwing "stuf" (not the word we use!) together, and it comes out great. We can finish each other's sentences, and have just about the best MIL/DIL relationship anyone can have. I'm glad to have her.
My cooking triumphs
I wouldn't say triumphs, but I've delivered some "wow-ee"'s, such as an upside-down banana cake with brown sugar and pecan glaze, and a pretty cool batch of Chocolate Rugelach.
