Married MOM with a 4 year-old son, a 2 year old daughter, and a nine year old step daughter. Part time X-ray Technologist and LOVE to play in the kitchen. Sometimes my creations turn out good... sometimes they don't! But its fun learning as I go, and feels good when it goes well. Cooking and baking seems to relax me and my husband always appreciates the results.
My favorite things to cook
Dinner is a favorite... I'm always looking for something new to try. Also baking is becoming more and more fun as I get better at it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Family Cheese Ball. Passed to me by my mother and grandmother... Its just not Christmas without it. When I take it to a pot luck or gathering, I never leave without at least one request for the recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not so sure anything I've made could be called a triumph... I'm just enjoying exploring the world of cooking.
My cooking tragedies
Rice!! No matter how many times I make rice it flops. Minute rice, brown rice you name it... I flop it! Crunchy one time mushy the next. Its not rocket science you'd think I'd get it.(With practice my rice is starting to taste kinda sorta ok... but its just not perfect yet!)
