I am a wife and mother of 2.
My favorite things to cook
Italian food, Mexican and Hearty Meat & Potato dishes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a teenager, preparing dinner for my parents while they were working, and now for my family and parents when they come to visit.
My cooking triumphs
My Cousins wedding cake, and 22 individual cakes for each table!
My cooking tragedies
Ugh, many cakes that flopped in the summer humidity before we had air conditioning. OH and that chocolate swirled cheese cake that I brought to a friends house for dinner! I couldn't figure out why it was taking so long to cook and the center still looked gooey! We ate the outer edeges which were yummy, but the rest went in the trash. I re-read the recipe later and found out it was a double recipe! RULE # 1-- Always read your recipe all the way through before you start to cook!!
