Soldier and mother of one. I absolutely love to cook. I like to try new and different recipes. And I absolutely "glow" when my family raves about my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts......cakes, cookies, brownies and muffins.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family tradition: I do all the cooking for all holiday gatherings. It's a lot a work, but I love to "host" all of our major gatherings.
My cooking triumphs
Made an Oreo cheesecake from scratch. Everyone loved it. It turned out beautiful. I decorated it with real whipped cream. Looked just like the photo in a women's magazine.
My cooking tragedies
First time I made a pound cake, it turned out horrible. It was way too "heavy" and dense. It seemed to be undercooked and over cooked at the same time. Horrible! After numerous attempts, I'm happy to say my pound cakes are now a "requested" item.
