I work as an online teacher from home, and also am a graduate student working towards adding an additional teaching license.
My favorite things to cook
Orange Pork Chops, baking pies, and going to stretch my grilling and bread making skills!
After taking a Michaels Cake Decorating class I am practicing my artistic skills, and buttercream baking skills.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Each Christmas my mom, sister and I have a bakefest and put together tins with goodies that get sent to San Diego for my uncle, and across Minnesota. Friends and family look forward to receiving their tins each year and it is a tradition that will continue on for years.
My cooking triumphs
Baking successful pies for the annual picnic, and also trying a new recipe and having it taste good the first time!
Taking a cake decorating class at Michaels to learn how to make my baked goods look good!
My cooking tragedies
I came home from work one day, put some eggs on to hardboil and forgot about them and went to take a nap. (It was something I would do 3-4 times a week) After hearing a couple sounds like someone was knocking at the front door it hit me "THE EGGS!!!!" Basically it was an explosion of egg ALL over the kitchen. Ceiling...behind the stove...Out of 7 eggs, 5 exploded. I turned off the heat, let it cool and threw out the pan.
