I'm a married woman with a full time job, two kids, and a husband with wierd hours (he works 12 hour night shifts). I love cooking and cleaning as wierd as that sounds. I eventually want to be a great cook but definitely need some practice first!!!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking anything that will impress my husband and turn into a healthy meal. However, I do have an addiction for making anything with sugar or chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother used to make these cookies that she called cowboy cookies. Everyone in my family loved them but me so I'm determined to improve on the recipe when I figure out how!
My cooking triumphs
I took great pleasure in being able to recreate a cake that my mother-in-law had made for husband's birthday.
My cooking tragedies
For another one of my husband's birthdays, he asked me to make him a coconut cream pie from scratch. I researched and found a recipe. The first attempt with my recipe ended up down the drain because I didn't read the directions completely and mixed ingredients in the wrong order. The second attempt ended in the trash can when I found out he didn't like the pie and informed me that he wanted his mother's coconut cream pie. The third attempt with his mother recipe also ended down the drain because I mixed everything in the wrong order, again!! I finally got it right on the fourth try! What a way to waste a dozen eggs!
