Live and work in the forest! Its beautiful and I love being surrounded by all the cool animals, including mountain lions! :) My husband and I also have a side business doing face/body art and glitter tattoos. We love to see kids reactions to the designs we paint on them! You can check out our work here: www.facebook.com/creativeartfx
My favorite things to cook
Desserts and sweets are my absolute favorite thing to make. I like some breakfast things too, crepes are the best. I'm trying to widen my range on dinner items. Luckily my husband isn't picky and eats whatever I make.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Easter and Christmas, my mom used to make a bunch of really yummy appetizers instead of a big dinner and we would munch on them all day long. I like not having to commit to one large meal...it leaves more room in my tummy to sample lots of things all day long :)
My cooking triumphs
I've become known in my community for baking in general, but I'd say my cinnamon rolls are still the most popular thing I make.
My cooking tragedies
I've had a few...the worst was one day when it was such weird weather that the cake I made didn't rise. So I made another cake, and not only did it not rise, but it stuck to the cake pans (they were even greased!). So i repeated the recipe one more time thinking it was something I did, and the cake didn't rise and stuck in the pans again. Worst baking day ever. Thankfully it never happened again.
