I'm a mother of a blended family with five teenagers, 1 dog and 1 nephew-dog who lives with us, and 1 bunny.
I keep my sanity by partying for my job! Yes, I am a Passion Parties D.I.V.A. and I LOVE my job!
I'm also an unpublished author. I say unpublished because I haven't submitted any of my writing yet, but will one day soon!
My husband is a wonderful man who helps and encourages me in all I do!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything!
My family's favorites are:
My Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake
My Pasta Salad
My homemade Salisbury Steak
My Chicken Alfredo
My Red Beans & Rice (I use Mahatma Rice's recipe as a start & then add my own touches)
And MANY others!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy cooking with my family!
Our children started learning to cook at the age of 11 with us. We figure if they want to move out one day, they'll need to know how to cook because fast food is NOT good for you!
My cooking triumphs
After my first cooking tragedy where my brothers and ex-husband laughed at me, I was determined to do better!
Since then, I've learned to cook amazing food!
My lasagna is my signature dish.
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I made for my first husband & two of my three brothers was my biggest tragedy.
I made beef tips, noodles and gravy and it came out extremely dry and the meat was like hard pebbles.
Before this meal I'd only cooked burgers or small things for myself...never for anyone else.
