I am a wife with 4 wonderful children; 1 daughter in college and 3 boys. I love to cook family style meals and love to cook!
My favorite things to cook
Anything over an open flame while camping with my husband and children!! I like to bake cinnamon rolls, hot rolls, peach cobbler, any breakfast foods. My husband is an awesome griller and I like to make all the sides to go with what's on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to travel as a family, but with 4 children it can get quite expensive. I take my crock pot everytime we go anywhere. Pork roasts, chili, cinnamon apples, etc. As my children are becoming older, we are trying to create some family traditions such as Christmas Day dinner at our home, not traveling around from house to house all day.
My cooking triumphs
I am getting much better at dumplings and pie crust. I have the ability to cook for large crowds and get all the food on the table at one time while it is still hot! Time management in the kitchen I guess.
My cooking tragedies
Hashbrown and ham casserole, yuck just thinking about it! Making sweet tea for all of the movers and helpers that helped move my family into a new community that my husband was to pastor. I made the tea, slipped on our new kitchen floor and spilled 2 gallons everywhere; all in front of them all!! I cleaned up a sticky mess weeks!
