I'm a busy mom to four little yahoo's. I love to cook, and enjoy trying new recipes with my family.
My favorite things to cook
desserts! I'm always asked to bring a dessert to gatherings. I seem to be able to spot a good one in a cookbook, lol
My favorite family cooking traditions
during the holidays, my grandmother, cousins, aunts, anyone female relate, lol, will get together and prepare for whatever feast we were serving. I learned so many things from different people, and it was fun too.
My cooking triumphs
I threw a baby shower tea for a friend last year. I got my timing just perfect, and my hot horderves came out right as the guests arrived, and the food flowed really well with the event. I did a tripple berry trifle (first try at this!) that everyone thought I had made at a local bakery, and everyone was amazed that I had made all the food (and I've had people since ask me to parties for them, lol)
My cooking tragedies
my first year in college, I decided to have some of the other students over who were also unable to go home for the holidays. I've watched my mom do the turkey for years, and I was confident I could pull it off. Yeah, we ended up all chipping in for Boston Market, lol. It still gives me a good chuckle every holiday season
