I am a Army wife stationed here in Fayetteville, NC! I am a mother to 5 great kids ranging from 24-1 and I am married to an awesome soldier who loves my cooking. We're less than 5 years out from retiring from the miltary, so it is quite exciting to see what God has in store what God has in store for us! Hoo-ah!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake desserts and am known for my cakes! My hubby and I love to grill and I especially love casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is a big time for family and friends! We all share in the cooking as many will "sign up" to bring a dish! Everything is always sooo good and I love eating other people's dishes! As far as my kids can remember, Sunday was the day that I would make a special dessert. Normally my Death By Chocolate cake or Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Now that I only have 2 kids left in the house, it's charming when the older ones come home for the Holidays or a visit and love the fact that I will still make a special dessert on Sundays. My hubby also makes an incredible Mexican Casserole that is scrumptious! He usually makes it for guests.
My cooking triumphs
Out of 5 kids, two are good cooks! I love that! Also, I will master the art of Fondant! Pastry School might be in the future!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh! I added additional sour cream to a favorite coffee cake recipe and then accidently underbaked it. It was raw and gooey in the center and I was horrified. My guests were very forgiving and ate around the edges.
