my name is Tracie, i am a mother of 4 beautiful children and married to my best friend of 8 years. we live in Pleasanton, Tx just a small country town in the middle of no where. we are a close family with small town values. i love finding new recipes on the internet and trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
i like to cook just about anything, but mostly i try finding new and improved ways to cook kid friendly meals. my favorite thing i guess to eat and or cook would be southern type meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
the woman in my family always cooked huge meals, they catered to the men and made sure they ate well lol. my mom cooked more than anyone else i knew but never really showed me many of the reciepes so i had to learn on my own, other than helping her stir mixes for cookies and cakes i stayed out of the kitchen till i was married.
My cooking triumphs
since my mom passed away me and my older sister took over cooking for the family for holidays, we had to teach ourselves to cook the way mama did, its been hard, but we enjoy taking over the family tradition and watching everyone smile.
My cooking tragedies
to many to list, i try hard to make great meals but i do have my flaws lol, i think maybe i try a bit to hard.
