I'm newly married and love having my husband around to use as my "lab rat" :) He loves trying new recipes and I've got many to still try out with my recipe book collection. I'm in my first year of teaching Foods and Culinary Art classes at a high school and somedays it seems like I'm learning just as much as them!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of sweets and goodies. If it will give you a sugar rush than I like to make it. I also enjoy quick casseroles and working with yeast products.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas we make oodles of cut out cookies and frost them!
My cooking triumphs
I've mastered making 18 buffet style pans of homemade mac and cheese with 20 high school students in a matter of 1 1/2 hours!
My cooking tragedies
I've learned to never preheat an oven when a pan of bars with a plastic lid is already in there. You get one gooey mess and even a few flames if you're lucky!
