I have been married since 1998 and have a four year old son and a newborn baby girl (as of July 2007). I love family life; being a stay at home wife and mother and all that entails. I am blessed.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making up new recipes. It excites me when I bring something to the table and my husband goes on and on asking me where I got the recipe and I came up with it myself. (now I just need to get up the guts to post these recipes)
I used to hate to bake, but my in-laws bought me a kitchen aid mixer a few years back and so now I enjoy baking and have learned a lot from the best baker/cook; my 'southern' mother-in-law. And I LOVE baking for my son who appreciates it, he always asks for MY cookies verses store bought.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love big breakfasts.
All family get togethers = good food.
Holiday sweets = extra pounds but yummy.
My cooking triumphs
Getting a kitchen aid mixer and realizing how easy baking can be.
My cooking tragedies
Pound cake falling ... how depressing after all those ingredients.
I sometimes leave out important ingredients or over do an ingredient, errr that makes me mad. It is hard to juggle kids and cooking sometimes.
