I am a 23 year old mother of two boys, and a husband who is just like a little kid! :) I hadn't cooked anything until we got together and I tried to wow him with what I thought was cooking... Turns out toast and giving people gum isn't cooking. :) I love outdoors, hiking biking, camping. I love where we live because it snows so much, I love snowboarding and playing in the snow. I do a lot of volunteer work, mostly with kids. (middle school age)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking. I am best at making anything baked. I love making homemade cookies, brownies, cakes ect. I love making italian noodle dishes as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I came from a family that didn't cook. my mom would make boxed foods like hamburger helper and that was the extent of my cooking knowledge until I got married. My mother in law makes the best desserts however. she makes the best cheesecake in the world. And someday I plan to get the recipe from her. :)
My cooking triumphs
For my son's birthday last year it was his first so we went all out, all kinds of family and cooking. I made 13 appetizers and successfully I might add. Everything from warm crab dip to bacon devilled eggs! I timed everything perfect and everything came out beautiful!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make apple crisp. (not too long ago) My husbands favorite part is the "crisp" so I made extra. only....It turned out to be 4 inches of crisp and almost no apples.... it was awful! lol
