I'm 30 years old, married with two gorgeous kids. I'm also a full-time student, studying early childhood education.
My favorite things to cook
Every Christmas, I make a variety of cookies to pass out to friends and coworkers. I love baking so I have a lot of fun making, decorating, and packaging cookies every year!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I started out making sugar cookies and gingerbread every Christmas eve, years ago when I was young. I have since added to that tradition by including different kinds of cookies and making them all month long. And now my kids can help, too!
My cooking tragedies
One yaer, I tried to make York peppermint cookeis. I couldn't find the York baking chips anywhere, so I cut up some regular-sized patties. The mint filling melted in the oven and oozed out of the cookies, it was terrible!
Also... my friend and I tried to make pistachio chicken with a pomegranete sauce once. The result was chicken coated in green chunks and topped with a pepto bismol pink sauce. Bleck!
