I am a wife and stay-at-home mom of two adorable sons. I enjoy reading, movies, cooking and baking, music, and baseball.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, pies, cakes (so basically desserts of all kinds), pasta, bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think the main tradition is my mom's Texas Sheet Cake that she made for us for every birthday. It's THE family cake and every time I eat it I am flooded with memories.
For Christmas dinner, we make my dad's Chinese food--fried rice, broccoli beef, cashew chicken, pork lo mein, and potstickers. It's a random tradition, but I love it.
My cooking triumphs
Correctly making the frosting for Texas Sheet cake was a huge triumph for me, I've always ruined it in the past. I think my other main triumph is becoming the family pie lady; I don't like pie, but everyone in my family love my pies.
My cooking tragedies
I ruined the Red Velvet cake I made for mine and my husband's first anniversary --it was a big crumbly mess. I cried! One time when I made a Texas Sheet cake for my friend's birthday, I completely ruined the frosting and no one at it.
There was also a time a casserole my roomate and I were making exploded in the oven. That was not a fun mess to clean up. I could go on...
