I'm a mother of 2 and have always loved to cook, but now that I'm home with my kids it has become a great creative outlet for me.
I have always loved to host dinners and parties, being hospitable to others and cooking for them (to me) is an extension of this.
My favorite things to cook
I love comfort foods, but I have become a little more of a health nut, so creating new salads and dressings as well as more types/ways to prepare fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas. Turkey for Thanksgiving and Ham for Christmas with ALL the trimmings!
My cooking tragedies
I've had some epic fails when it comes to challenging desserts. Over the years I have become better in this arena, but I still have more learning to do.
