I am a homeschooling mom who loves being able to take care of my family. I love being able to make everything from scratch and being able to say, "Yes, I made that! Wasn't it delicious?"
My favorite things to cook
I love my marinara sauce. I love baking, but don't do it as much as I like since it adds on the extra pounds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I remember on Sundays, my mom would make chocolate chip cookies, and EVERY time our neighbor would somehow smell them (even though he lived roughly 1 mile away) and would stop by for some coffee and cookies. I also remember my mom baking homemade white bread and my brother and I would eat the first loaf as soon as it came out of the oven.
My cooking triumphs
I can bake a cheesecake from scratch! My cousin taught me how and it is truly wonderful! I finally can cook for my family for an entire month without repeats.
My cooking tragedies
I've learned more than once: Don't alter your recipe for the first time when you are expecting dinner guests.
