I am a mother of four boys, the youngest who is 18. I am an Office Administrator who is currently working part time.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook baked goods, jams, confections, and specialty breads. I also like to try new things when presenting meals to my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I share the cooking equally as he is a wonderful cook as well. His style is different from mine so we compliment each other. On major holidays for example Christmas and Thanksgiving my husband will prepare the main dishes while I prepare the pastries and desserts.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs have to be my peanut brittle. I have a number of people request it for Christmas. Also another favorite of family and friends is my homemade jams.
My cooking tragedies
I have never really had a tragedy, but I have tried new recipes that I thought my family would like and they didn't go over very well.
