My love of cooking came from my Grandma who was the best. She has been gone for almost 20 years and people still rave about her cakes. I enjoy cooking for my husband and 2 children who are growing up so fast and learning to do a lot of the cooking on their own. I really enjoy reading blogs and find lots of new recipes and fun ideas for my family on them. Some of my favorites are www.kevinandamanda.com, http://bakeat350.blogspot.com, and http://thepioneerwoman.com/ to name a few. I would love to do more food photography so most of my favorite blogs are very good at both. I started my own blog this year check it out www.positivelyangel.com
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy sharing my food with others and it seems to be easiest to do that with appetizers. I am always on the hunt for new appetizers to bring to card club and all of the other places we end up at. We have a fire-pit in the backyard and it's fun to try new things that we cook on it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition has become having my children each create a Ginger Bread House from scratch at Christmas time. We use a picture of them with their creations as our Christmas postcard. It is amazing how many compliments we get and the kids love it. They look forward to it every year.
