I'm a 33 year old stay at home mom of 2 boys, 2 girls and one on the way. I both love and hate to be in the kitchen so I like simple cooking and complex cooking. I love to entertain with dinners. I'm a fan of doing things myself from hunting, fishing, gardening and raising my own animals so that I can affordably provide a variety of items for my ever growing family. :) I like making my own cheeses, soaps, breads and breakfast meats because I like the independence that comes from not having to run to the store everytime I need/want something.
My favorite things to cook
I don't think there's anything that falls into the category of "Things I Don't Like to Cook." I love cooking new things, coming up with new ideas/blends and, of course, sticking with the tried and true recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A favorite cooking tradition, if you want to call it that, is a handing down of an extremely simple peanut butter cookie recipe to the kids of the family. They feel like they're really accomplishing something and it gives them a sense of pride to have something they made be raved over.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make cheese.
My cooking tragedies
Learning to make cheese. LOL!!
