I'm married to a great guy and we have three wonderful kids! Ages 4, 2 and 2 months. I am a stay at home mom and life is nice and busy around here! I Love cooking and baking and sharing what I have made with others.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Tikka Masala, Manicotti, and stir fry. These dishes allow me room to experiment. I also really enjoy baking, I like to make pies. Apple is my favorite, and I enjoy making cookies. I like to try new things. I have a new convection oven and my new thing to make is homemade pizza.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For the holidays we would all get together and have dinner together. My grandma would make candied Yams, my Mom would make the turkey and me and my sisters would make the pies. Everyone was in the kitchen doing something, sometimes it was very tight but we all had fun.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake, I had never made one of these before. I chose to make a pumpkin cheesecake for thanksgiving. I was very happy when it turned out, and was thrilled when eveyone said that they enjoyed it. Also after much trial and error I have perfected my pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
I am now making my own homemade bread and the first loaf that I made came out bullet proof!!! i baked in a glass dish and did not lower the temp. The inside was yummy but it was very tough to slice the bread, since the crust was bullet proof! Since then I have metal pans and I lowered the temp and my last batch turned out perfect!!
