Newlywed, who is a stay at home wife. First time not working outside the home since I was 15. My son will be a sophomore at Mizzou/University of Missouri and I like to make him something special when he comes home a couple of times a month. Loving trying new recipes on my husband who is the easiest person ever to cook for!
My favorite things to cook
Italian dishes, casseroles, meats and baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a full blooded Berliner and I'm trying to learn more of her German dishes. She is an amazing cook!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering her German goulash (ok-sometimes. lol)...baking my husband an apple pie, from scratch, for his birthday. I hadn't made pies before. People seem to love my lasagna, chicken/cheese casserole and beef enchiladas. Crazy enough, I was really proud when I finally cooked eggs, made to order, the right way. ( :
My cooking tragedies
Oh wow-baking a cake once for a family dinner and leaving the wax paper between layers. I was 18. So many others, but two words come to mind: smoke detector!
