My primary job is being a homeschooling Mom of 4 kids ages 10 to 19. I am also a CPA and work out of my home.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking and baking many different styles of cuisine ranging from classic comfort food to gourmet meals. I'm always trying new recipes and techniques. I also enjoy canning and preserving from our garden.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy sharing my cooking tips with my children. My oldest two sons are right at home in the kitchen and I'm continuing the tradition teaching the younger two now.
My cooking triumphs
I can pull off big gatherings pretty well. It could be a party for 2 dozen people with hors'd'ouvres or a full sit down dinner for just as many. I love cooking for a crowd!
My cooking tragedies
If you've been cooking long enough and frequently try new things you do have disasters. One particular meatloaf should have been deployed as a SCUD missile. Another oops- don't cool a rounded cake on the rack upside down. It will split open, which is no fun to frost.
