I'm a stay at home mommy to my son, born December 2009. I watch the Food Network whenever I can, and I've learned so much from it over the years! I love cooking and baking, minus the cleanup! I try to make everything from scratch, within reason (one day I'll make all our bread from scratch). I got a kitchenaid mixer a few years ago for my birthday, and ever since then it has made cooking/baking a lot easier!
My favorite things to cook
i love to use as many fresh ingredients as possible. always looking to *gourmet-ify* every day foods, like pizza, sandwiches, pastas, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter when my mom or aunt cooks for everyone. I also love my great grandma's stuffing recipe, my aunt's chicken and dumplings, and my grandma's velvet midnight cake. YUM!
My cooking tragedies
homemade macaroni and cheese. my cheese sauce never turns out right, and i still havent figured it out!
