A wife and mother, I work as an RN at a local hospital. I enjoy antiques, painting, crafts, etc. I am married and we have 2 kids. We also have a dog. We live in a great big brick Victorian Italianate house which I am very fond of. My dream is to get it, the yard, and the outbuildings looking like they would have back in the day, almost 150 years ago. I like to do things with my family and friends. I like going to garage sales, flea markets, and antique stores. I am interested in gardening and raising our own food, and would like to get some chickens.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I usually like to make Christmas cookies and candy with my daughter and/ or my friends/ relatives.
My cooking triumphs
I won grand champion in a cooking contest for making a beef wellington once. We also won an award and $1000 for a beef item we made from the beef council in our state.
My cooking tragedies
Once I put baking soda accidentally in something instead of corn starch. It was pretty nasty. I got most of it picked out but still had to throw it away.
