I'm Mama to seven girls and one boy, all of whom love to eat! We homeschool so they have lots opportunities to learn to cook. I like to sew, draw, sing hymns and organize things.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to *bake*: bread, cakes, pies, cookies, anything that requires a hot oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Preparing for the holidays with my mom was always a treat and shaped my ideas of kitchen arts: food is love and love tastes great!
My cooking triumphs
I make meals for ladies from church after they've had babies and one mama told me "your cooking is enough to make me get pregnant just for a meal!" (She is expecting her eighth child now. How much longer can this go on?)
My cooking tragedies
I keep salt and sugar in identical cannisters in my cupboard (anyone remember SNL's "Bad Idea Jeans" ads?). My tragedies all involve mistaking one for the other.
