I am a single mom to two beautiful teenage girls. I love to cook and bake. Trying new foods and recipes is something that I enjoy a lot. I am addicted to the "Food Network"!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I make cookies, cakes, cupcakes, pastries, muffins, pies, and candies. If it is sweet...it is for me! I've taken all four of the Wilton cake decorating classes and loved them all.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I loved cooking and baking with my younger sister when I was growing up. Each weekend we would take over the kitchen and cook for the family. The only problem was the clean-up! I had hoped that my girls might do something like this, but sadly...no.
My cooking triumphs
Eggplant parmesan and roasted Brussels sprouts...basically making anything outside of my comfort zone and finding out that I really like it!
My cooking tragedies
I keep trying to incorporate sweet potatoes into my diet and find new recipes that I think might work. The tragedy is that as much as I want to like them...I just don't!
