I've started out by helping my mom in the kitchen when I was small. Baking has always been my favorite thing to do. I turn to Allrecipes to help me with my cooking and we like most of the recipes we've tried so far!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts!!!! Brownies, cookies, cakes, and especially breads. Homemade pizza at least once a week!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most of my traditions come from when I was a little girl. My mom would let me help roll out dough for cookies, bread, and biscuits. Making Chocolate Pixies was a tradition at Christmas; as well as other holiday cookies. I am still trying to establish baking traditions with my children, but it's difficult for me to share because I love doing it so much! Plus, my three oldest children are boys and not very interested to help.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make potato salad and getting rave reviews from my husband and friends, trying new recipes that come out tasting yummy, teaching my children to use the kitchen safely and successfully having them prepare a beef stew, perfecting my pizza dough recipe.
My cooking tragedies
An eggshell in my deviled eggs once, biscuits that were too dry, wanting to create my own recipes and not knowing where to begin.
