I have lived in Minnesota my whole life. I started cooking when I figured out my parents couldn't cook (I use to thank the lunch ladies at school because I thought the food was good), I was about 14. I am blessed with a wonderful family. I thank the Lord for them! I have 3 kids, 17(step child), 7, & 2. All of my kids are such a blessing and present me their own joys and problems. It is nice to have them all spaced out because you get to enjoy so much. I do have to say that I am happy that I am done with diapers and would never go back. I have a, most of the time, wonderful husband.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook bars, cookies and anything sweet. Everyone loves baked stuff. It makes me the favorite and most wanted at any party. The best part of it is most baking is really easy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have yet to start one but really should, soon.
My cooking triumphs
Gravy was my first triumph. Looking back I laugh. Creme Brulee and Betty La Mae.
My cooking tragedies
The under-cooked turkey for Thanksgiving. It was almost thawed but not there and the leg area was still a little pink.
