I am married to a great husband, and we share a 2 year old son and 2 month old daughter together. I am originally from San Diego, and I met my husband while he was in the service and we have since moved back to North Carolina where he is from and are trying to find a place to settle down.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies always, I love to bake. I love to cook anything Italian or mediterreanean or try anything new. I love to create things all on my own and surprise my husband, although he is not the most adventurous of eaters. He prefers more traditional foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies at Christmas, and pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. Can't forget black eyes on New Years and Corned beef and cabbage for St. Patty's day.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I ever made a German Chocolate cake completely from scratch was when I was 12 for my mom's birthday. It came out perfectly and I couldn't believe I had done it all by myself.
My cooking tragedies
Rice pudding. I tried to make it once from memory, and lets just say I must have forgotten something.
