I am a homeschooling mom of TWO, and married to the man God made for me! I love to entertain and cook for family and friends. When I was a child, I used to cook and bake constantly, everyone was always having to try my new foods. Constantly searching www.allrecipes.com for exciting new recipes. I also love the Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond)
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook with vegetables because they give foods such color. If I cook food, it has to be PRETTY! I love to try new spices and combinations of flavors. I battle with the every-day grind and try to manage a hot meal on the table every night :)
My cooking triumphs
I've begun baking a lot of cakes for any holiday. I especially love carving out birthday cakes -- and I only use homemade buttercream!
My cooking tragedies
I was probably 11 years old, I was baking homemade apple muffins if I remember correctly. I either was supposed to put in baking powder and put in baking soda, or visa versa, but it turned out terrible!! I was handing out the muffins to my family, and of course they ate them slowly.... Later I tasted one and found out how incredibly BITTER they were!! I was so embarassed and so apologetic. :)
