I am a stay at home mom of 6 aging from 15 yrs to 6 months.
I am married to the most wonderful man.
I am thankful everyday for the life that I have :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Anything that makes my house fill with smells of the holidays I love to make. I will spend the entire day sometimes doing nothing but whipping up delicious desserts to pass out to friends & family, just because it makes me happy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to sit in the kitchen and visit with my mother while she cooked away when I was young. I have my kids sit with me and visit while I cook dinners now. I enjoy hearing their stories and they don't even realize that they are spending time making memories that will last forever, just as I did with my mom.
My cooking tragedies
I set my kitchen on fire in 2007. That was the scarcest thing EVER! A girlfriend and I had spent the afternoon making tamales and I was making them for dinner that night. I throw them in the steamer pan and wet to do laundry, well the water evaporated much faster than I anticipated and when I lifted the steamer basket to add more water the lard/air combo sent flames flying out of the pan. Smoke was everywhere & my baking soda was in the cupboard above the flames. I screamed for the kids to get outside and got the fire extinguisher. Scary! Haven’t done that again thank god!
