Mother of three, wife to one;)who loves to cook for friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, breakfast, Holiday meals, comfort foods, anything my mom use to make that reminds me of home
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together with friends to bake Christmas cookies. My mom always took me with her to one of her friend's houses to bake cookies all day. We would end up with cookies to freeze for the entire holiday season.
My cooking triumphs
Hosting Thanksgiving at my house for 16 people. I did all the cooking and it turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
Inviting friends over for ribs and chicken on the grill. I had never made ribs before and it was storming outside so my grill kept going out. I ended up finishing in the oven but it was over an hour later and it just was a mess of the meal. Thankfully I had great guests and we enjoyed the evening anyway.
