I'm a mother of four beautiful children, a 5 year old girl with preconceived notions of being a princess, a 4 year old girl that can hang with the toughest boy, and 2 year old twin boys who are as different as night and day. Along with that a great boyfriend who loves to make me laugh. My boyfriend pretty much likes everything I cook but my children on the other hand are not so easy to feed, but we have one rule that works pretty good: taste it, if you don't like it then you can eat cereal (their favorite thing to eat). It works and most of the time, to their amazement, they like it!!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make anything with pasta. Pasta is my biggest weakness. I love to make a lil of everything though, especially something big enough to feed my army! Spaghetti if the family favorite, I make that alot.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The holidays, like everyone else, are our busiest timesMy daughters like to come in and help and I love to see my grandmother, my mom, my aunts, and my daughters all squished into thet kitchen. It reminds me that even though we are a very large, very loud, and slightly dysfunctional family, we love to be together and we love to feed each other!!!
My cooking triumphs
I still remember when I baked my first chocolate cake from scratch, it's been a long time but when i took it out of the oven, that's when I knew that this is what I loved!
My cooking tragedies
The same first cake that I loved so much! It came out beautiful, the second half of a gorgeous chocolate two layer cake......until the top layer split right in half!!!
