I'm a mom of two grown boys who are both US Marines. I learned most of what I know about cooking from my grandma who wasn't afraid of experimenting in the kitchen. I'm the partner of a wonderful woman who is a carpenter by trade and we've been together 10 years. We own our home and have 2 weiner dogs named Bo and Dexter, and a cat named Watson.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a baker at heart, but I love trying new recipes all the time for main dishes, salads..etc. I also love making soup and stews. I'll try anything once!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
making waffles for my sons while they're home for shorter and shorter periods of time...empty nest is hitting me hard, but I have a great life and wouldn't change a thing.
My cooking triumphs
I've heard I make the best cookies ever, also my sausage pancakes are a hit too..pretty much anything I put on the table doesn't last long in this house!
My cooking tragedies
I remember one time I tried to make buffalo chicken breasts and made a buffalo chicken wing sauce to bake them in..omg was that a mistake. you couldnt even eat it, it was so disgusting in large bites..lol actually, it was disgusting no matter what size the bite was..lol
