About Me
I am married and the mom of one preteen daughter, one crazy cockapoo, and one shelter cat. I am a cookbook addict. I like to read all kinds of cookbooks.
My favorite things to cook
Muffins, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, quick breads, and candy
My cooking triumphs
The first angel food cake I made from scratch came out beautiful.
My cooking tragedies
Never make gravy in a glass baking pan on top your electric stove. Thankfully we were in the living room when it exploded. This happened during my learning to cook days.
