I'm a work at home mom of 2, office manager for our dog training business, homeschool teacher, and cook! Somewhere in there I love to try new recipes and share them with friends and family!
My favorite things to cook
Soups, challah, stir fry, anything sweet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Seeing my five year old daughter make challah this year with me has been really fun. She tries to knead the dough, but it's so tough I usually have to step in and save her!
My cooking triumphs
Making yeast breads! My first few attempts I killed the yeast for one reason or another, so it was so exciting to get it right! Now I make homemade breads much more often and love the different textures & flavors I'm able to get. Sourdough is my new favorite!
My cooking tragedies
Alas, I cannot say my foray into character cakes has been wildy successful. I made an "Ariel" cake for my daughter 2 years ago, and she looked absolutely frightening! This year I did a Barbie cake & it turned out much better since I didn't have to do eyes or mouths!
