I have 3 children, ages 3,7,and 8...am happily married going on 11 years now to my sweetie I met at community college.
My favorite things to cook
Mostly I cook simple italian, mexican and american dishes for my family. But I love trying new recipes and new flavors and I try to expand my family's palate. I also am an avid baker...breads, pastries and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year I make a lamb cake for Easter, we bake cookies by the dozens and dozens at Christmas and of course I bake treats for Thanksgiving dessert.
My cooking tragedies
I hate that there are some simple things that I just can't seem to do correctly, soup, for instance is a real challenge and I've yet to make a decent simple Chicken soup. I also hate when I'm cooking something very easy and I end up burning it, like a banana bread, for instance! Grrrrr.
