I am a mom of three ages 7,5 and 2. For that reason I love to whip things up that are quick and easy!! However, I usually love to spend times on my desserts as that is my stress release. UPDATE: Fast forward 4 years...we now have 4 kids aged; 11, 8, 6 & 10mos. Wow does time fly! I still love cooking and baking, just not enough time to do the more in-depth recipes. Maybe down the road....
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, Cakes More Cakes!!!!!!!!! Well, I also like to make large course dinners as I have FINALLY mastered cooking multiple dishes at the same time (in my ONE oven).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving has become a tradition for me for the last 3 years. I wanted to take the pressure off of my grandmother who lives 5 miles away. I truly love the feeling of satisfaction after everyone gets together at my house to 'catch up' and she has none of the cleanup or preparation to worry about.
My cooking triumphs
Let's see, a black forest cake from scratch was very intimidating but turned out excellent. I never thought I could cook a large turkey right that tasted great but I did!!
My cooking tragedies
This is easy, when I was 15 I tried to make my mom's infamous Blondies but somehow, I got baking powder and baking soda confused. They smelled like fish, and tasted just as bad!!
