I was a retail manager until 2 years ago when I decided to become a stay at home mom to my 3 kids. Since leaving the working world, I've been able to rediscover my love for cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I love cake decorating so I enjoy trying new cake & frosting recipes. I love doing desserts, especially elegant looking frozen desserts. I like to prepare "down home" style meals, along with the occasional "exotic" meal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family loves to cook together.
My cooking triumphs
I prepared a gorgeous 4 tiered 50th anniversary cake with hand made sugar flowers which actually tasted as good as it looked!
My cooking tragedies
My mother hand copied all of her recipes for all 4 of her children. When I started trying out her recipes, I came to discover that she had often left out an item when copying. I couldn't figure out why things weren't turning out correctly, then discovered the problem when I was making cinnamon rolls & noticed there was no yeast listed in the ingredients! I joke that she intentionally left out ingredients so I would have to call her every time I cooked to double check the recipe. That's one way to make sure your kids stay in touch!
