I love being a mom and have 7 kids from ages 5 up to 18. They keep me busy and most days I love it! My husband and I go on dates each week and are very active in our church (LDS). Life is good!
My favorite things to cook
DESSERTS!! But I have to branch out so I can help my family eat healthy--My husband lost 35 pounds this year and I have to do my part to help him keep it off. I love to bake, especially cookies, muffins and cakes and do some self-taught cake decorating--have even done a few wedding cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's roll recipe. It's so easy and good. I remember helping her make them, cinnamon rolls and cherry turnovers especially. Yum!
My cooking triumphs
I consider any day I can make a dinner that the majority of my family of nine will eat, that is generally healthy, and there's enough for everyone a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
When I was first learning to cook (probably 12 years old or so) I made cookies and switched the salt and sugar amounts. Eww!
