I love to cook. I am a single mom of two wonderful kids so often times time is of the essence! I love to take a recipe and tweek it to make it my own. I hope to be able to pass on my passion of cooking by teaching my kids how much fun it is to cook!
My favorite things to cook
My cooking philosophy is a little of this a little of that; which tends to get interesting when someone asks me for a recipe for something I've created. I feel as though cooking should be somewhat off of instinct. and trial and error. I Love to make Chocolate chip cookies. And I love to try to duplicate dishes I've had elsewhere with my own twist.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making Christmas cookies just before Thanksgiving with my mother, sisters and our children. It's great to get us all in the kitchen together and then have cookie decorating contests.
My cooking triumphs
Whoopie pies! Making a tortiere(french meat pie) that can stand up to my memeres! Putting my own personal spin on recipes I find to make them more of mine.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in elementary school I was trying to make an old-world cookie and I accidently put one cup of salt instead of one teaspoon. Needless to say the cookies were very interesting.
