I am a 36yr old SAHM to 6 beautiful kids. I have been cooking since I was 8 yrs old.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking all types of things. I can't get enough of trying "new" things. I am very fluent in Southern cooking and baking, and for the most part, I don't use recipes for anything, I just taste and feel what it should be.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I currently am homeschooling my kids, and every week, we look up a new recipe or 2 or 3 and have a cooking class. The kids love learning to make new things, and it's fun to be able to eat your homework and NOT get it trouble!
My cooking triumphs
My biggest ever cooking triumph was the year I baked 20 varieties of christmas cookies, all with hand piped decorations, over the course of 3 days, loaded them in a car and drove from Atlanta Georgia, to Indiana and had an entire family raving about the "bakery" I bought these from....then I got to expose my dirty secret....I MADE THEM! :-)
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was when I was 14 yrs old and cooking a turkey, and instead of using poultry seasoning,I accidently filled the turkey with cinnamon powder! The turkey was "interesting" to say the least, and that was the only time I ever had anyone not finish something I cooked. I learned to check and double check so you don't have those kind of mistakes.
