I am a soon to be stay-at-home momma. I've been working since I was 14 years old so being home a lot is not something I'm used to so I have been trying to find things to abide my time and cooking has become one of those things.
My favorite things to cook
New recipes! Anything new is my style. If I'm whipping up something old, I try to put a new twist on it, maybe some new spices. If it was a big hit with everyone I try to keep it about the same, and I'm still learning as I go...
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a kid our family ate fast-food and poor-man food, like mac & cheese with extras like tuna or hamburger. For my growing family I hope to find new, exciting recipes that make them love to eat at home and cook.
My cooking triumphs
My newest motto is "second times a charm". This is because anytime I fail at a recipe, I simply store it away for another day and after the second time around I seem to get it pretty well! Cooking is still pretty new to me.
My cooking tragedies
First-time cinnamon rolls... I had mis-read the recipe and thought the brown sugar went into the dough. The dough rose, but it was rather hard. Still good warmed up with some butter on the top (I had also failed at the frosting stuff too, not sure what went wrong there)
