I have been married to my wonderful husband for 16 years. I am a busy mom that works a full time job as a special education aide. I have 2 children. My oldest is in Iraq and I am a very active parent to my 15
year old son. He is in the High School band and I help with band boosters and I volunteer at Church by counting collections and I am on the finance council.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly I like to cook desserts but I really like anything. I cook nearly every night for dinner and am usually the main cook for all family gaterings
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays of course. We used to go to my grandmothers and make poppyseed rolls. I remember always kneading the dough by hand. Now I cheat and us a machine and I must admit it is much easier now.
My cooking triumphs
I can't say that any one thing stands out. I have always had everything turn out.
My cooking tragedies
I remember once when I first was married that I made a saurkraut and pork dish. We love saurkraut and pork but my husband and son hated it and we went out to dinner that night. I didn't think it was THAT bad. He still comment that that was the only time I made a bad meal.
