I have been married to my wonderful husband Mark for 4 years, together for over 13, and I love him more than anything! I moved around a lot with my parents growing up - I've lived in Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Alabama and Texas... Alabama having been my favorite. After the recent loss of my Father, my husband and I currently reside in Kingwood, Texas with my Mother, but we are hoping to be able to move back to Alabama at some point in the future.

My favorite things to cook
Going on my limited experience, I would have to say I am best at making omelets & deviled eggs, but I am very good at following a recipe... there's hope for me yet!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was always the day-to-day cook and quite good in her own right (especially her meatballs, lasagna & raspberry lindsor cookies!), but Dad would take care of the big things - holidays, celebrations, etc. His sausage stuffing at Thanksgiving is what I always looked forward to the most every year. ;o)
My cooking triumphs
I was very proud of an almost completely fat-free cheesecake that I made a few months ago... everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh - don't ever mash potatoes with one of those hand-held emersion blenders... you could've cemented a small building with what came out of that experience!
