I am super happily married and have five adult children. Although they choose when and where they want to be thought of as adults. We live on several acres of what used to be our family farm in NJ. We now own a small consignment store and try to be active in supporting our community and charitable organizations. I am trying to get the hang of cooking for only the three of us (my mom stays with us as well). I love to bake, especially around the holidays and am looking forward to the day when I can work less and entertain more.
My favorite things to cook
cookies, pies, soups, breads, Italian dishes,My own creations
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make a birthday breakfast called a "German Pancake" it requires about 18 eggs and creates wild contortions while baking in the oven. Tastes great with powdered sugar and blueberry pie filling.
My cooking triumphs
7 layer taco dip. so easy but its all anyone talks about; and a zucchini chocolate cake with cream cheese chocolate frosting, oh my.
My cooking tragedies
brisket. just leave it at that
