I am a wife and stay at home mother of three. I am also a part time student, working on a BA degree in Psychology. I like to cook, read, scrapbook, camp, hike, bike, and travel. I also love to just hang out with my friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything. I like to cook according to the seasons. Lots of naked fruits and veggies, and Bar B Q in the summer months. During the winter months I love to use my crock-pot and make cozy comforting foods like chili and chicken noodle soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was growing up we always ate dinner together as a family. I have a lot of great memories of my childhood seated around the dinner table. Today, my husband and I have carried on that tradition with our own family.
My cooking triumphs
Pulling off a great holiday meal, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas is always a yearly goal of mine. I love to go all out from the China and Silverware, to the homemade family recipes, music and candles. I love it!
My cooking tragedies
Once when I was making cookies with my 7 and 8 yr olds, we decided to play a board game while we waited for the cookies to bake. When the timer went off I ran into the kitchen and grabbed a towel, thinking it was a potholder, and yanked open the oven door. I grabbed the cookie sheet with my left hand and immediately felt the heat on my fingers, so I dropped the pan. But instinctively grabbed it with my right hand and burned my right arm in the process!
