The story that I am about to tell you is a true story and it actually happened a few months ago, but I was thinking about it at work this morning and I got the giggles because it was very hard not to laugh in 0630 PT formation. Some months ago when we got our family's first pet cat, we named… MORE

In the middle of August 1985, down a winding dirt road, sat a small white country church. This particular afternoon they were serving juice and cookies on the first day of their annual Vacation Bible School. On this day a little skinny green eyed girl with beaded braids in her hair met a… MORE

At the end of everyday, after the children are in the beds and the house is quiet, my husband and I enjoy a cup of tea together to reflect and catch up with the day's events. We remind each other of future appointments and lately we have been discussing our big move to Nevada at the end of… MORE

About Me
I am a 31 year old wife and mother and I take pride in each role. Right now I am serving in the U.S. Army. I have been cooking since I was 9 years old. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and cooking with my 5 year old daughter.
My favorite things to cook
I don't think there is one thing that I can say I love to cook more than another. I simply love to cook! cooking has become one of the ways I express my love for my friends and family(I know that sounds soooo cliche).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a few traditions that I love! of course Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter, but I also love weekend cooking. wkends are when I can cook a really nice breakfast and a really nice Sunday dinner. My daughter loves the white china we use for breakfast because she picked them out.
My cooking triumphs
Pecan Pie! I know that might be so simple to most people but I just started introducing myself to baking and even though the recipe I used came from the back of a karo syrup bottle, It was really good! It was a hit with the entire family, especially with a scoop of Byers Vanilla Ice Cream!
My cooking tragedies
MANY.......BUT, that is how I learned to be as good as I am now.
