I've been married for almost 10 years. We have a 6 year old adorable little girl and a precious 4 year old little boy. I'm a registered dietitian and freelance nutrition writer. I have loved everything about food since I can remember--cooking it, baking it, eating it, buying it, giving it, reading about it, etc.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly desserts---love to bake cakes and cookies, cupcakes and more. Like to cook too, just not as much, but like it alot better when the recipe turns out yummy as so many from this site do!
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a little girl I would bake with my grandmother. I think that's what started my interest. Then as I got older traditions with my mom like baking all kinds of different cookies and bars at Christmas and making homemade spaghetti sauce every Sunday.
My cooking triumphs
Mostly have been my "firsts". Feel very accomplished after my first loaf of bread or first layer cake with scratch frosting, first pie from scratch. Etc.
My cooking tragedies
No major tragedies just forgetting ingredients a couple of times---tends to be eggs for some reason. A pumpkin pie without eggs that was pumpkin "soup" and my grandfather ate anyway and a cake without eggs that just crumbled into a million pieces.
