Growing up, I lived in CA, WA, OK, IL, MI, and TN. I was stationed in FL and VA while in the Navy, and now live in PA.
I think being in so many places has given me alot of experience with different regional foods.
My favorite things to cook
I like baking and candy making more than cooking, but the kitchen is my favorite place in the house. I really enjoy making traditional foods, and I enjoy experimenting as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Throwing stuff in the pot until it looks good, then serving it for dinner. =)
My cooking triumphs
I made up recipes for Toffee Divinity and Butterscotch Fudge that are super yummy.
My cooking tragedies
I forgot to put baking powder in some cookies I made as a gift. They were more like poker chips than cookies, lol.
