I find that I can truly be myself in the kitchen - creative, daring, and sometimes silly. I enjoy trying new recipes all the time, and I am not sure I have made the same exact thing twice! I love tweaking my recipes for different palates every time I make a "favorite".
My favorite things to cook
Wow, that's a tough question! My husband's favorite is my chicken pot pie. I love my meatballs, and trying new things in my crockpot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Cookie Day! Every year the females in the family get together with multiple recipes each and bake all day. We exchange cookies, fill tins, and distribute to neighbors, coworkers, friends. It's a wonderful day that creates new memories each year.
