I am a 42 year old school teacher to 3 beautiful daughters ages 13, 11 & 8.
We are an active family that enjoys just about every outdoor sport and make sure to camp at least twice a year. I am also a freelance artist. I do a lot of pen & ink renderings of homes. My hubby has his own business specializing in granite countertops. I enjoy cooking when I have a quiet (hah!) house and my tunes on!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake breads and cakes.
I also like Italian and Mexican dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma Lucy's potato soup that her mother made. Her home was hit by a tornado when she was 9 years old and blown off it's foundation, but the pot of potato soup that was on the stove never moved!
My cooking triumphs
Having an Italian themed dinner party for 6 couples at our home that included spinach salad, tortellini soup, vegtable lasagna & tiramisu!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention!!! :(
