I am a stay at home mom of two wonderful children (4 1/2 yr. old son, 2 1/2 yr. old daughter). I love to cook and am always looking for new recipes to try. I am looking forward to the years ahead of me, both for watching my children grow and learn, but also myself. I hope to earn my Masters in Economics in the few years.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, anything yummy and sweet. I also like to make new dishes and anything that my picky son will eat. I especially like recipes that are quick and easy that get me in and out of the kitchen so I have more time to spend with my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was young, my sisters and I would help my mom bake and decorate christmas cookies. Now I've started that tradition with my own children. Last christmas my 3 year old cut out and decorated the cookies. This Christmas will be even better because I will have two little helpers.
My cooking triumphs
I don't like cheesecake, but my husband and son love it. So for their Christmas desert I made them a New York style cheesecake and it was a hit. My husband said that it tasted just like the kind he would get in a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
My first Asian inspired meal I tried to cook after I married was a disaster that we still laugh about to this day over 6 year later. It was so bad we left the meal on the table to go to our favorite Asian restaurant.
