I am 33 yrs old married with a beautiful 3 yr old daughter. I used to think I wasn't such a great cook, but since I have been with my husband I have gained a lot of confidence in the kitchen and have been trying new recipes all of the time.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy to bake. Since I was young, those were the things that I always looked at in the cookbooks. Now, I have broaden my horizons and try everything.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year starting at least a couple of weeks before Christmas my mom and I start this mad cookie baking extravaganza! We must make a billion cookies to give as gifts and fill our tables over the holidays. If we didn't go crazy baking every year, it wouldn't be Christmas!! I look forward to introducing my daughter to this insanity. I hope she enjoys it as much as I have been.
My cooking triumphs
According to my family, I have a few to list, my Wedding Soup gets requests, but I only make it maybe twice a year. But from what I understand, my great grandmother's oatmeal cookies only turn out right if I make them. Every Christmas, I know that I am the one in charge of baking dozens upon dozens of these tasty cookies!
My cooking tragedies
My husband likes just about anything I cook, providing it's stuff he generally likes. The only thing I can think of that failed was my very first batch of Pizzelles. Since then, they've been perfect every time!
