I'm a young urban professional working on the administrative side of the health care field. My goal is to become involved in the clinical side of things, and, as such, I'm also a part-time student. I'm also a relatively new housewife (married 11/3/03 and bought our first house 1/26/06) and the "mom" of three cats and a dog.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is desserts, but I also love casseroles, slow cooker dishes, and italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was an excellent cook, and I continue his traditions with light, flaky biscuits and fluffy pancakes. My mom couldn't cook very well, but made a mean grilled cheese sandwich, at which I also excel.
My cooking triumphs
I feel very proud that I am able to make my mother-in-law's Turkey Enchiladas well enough to satisfy my husband (and myself).
My cooking tragedies
I once forgot to put sugar in a batch of pumpkin pies I made for Thanksgiving dinner for the family. Not the worst mistake ever made, but definitely my most infamous!
