I love reading and taking pictures of my family, and I'm trying to get into running. I like to make and decorate cookies and cupcakes for and with my kids.
My favorite things to cook
DESSERT, especially chocolate! Also muffins, because my family always appreciates them. And I'm starting to get into soups, which in my mind also means fresh-baked bread!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Crawfish boils, and oliekooks (sp?) on Christmas morning. My children and I started a new tradition of decorating cookies, cupcakes, and candy for the holidays. (See the pic of our Valentine's Day cookies and Buckeye Ninjas on this website.)
My cooking triumphs
Mostly desserts, although I made a crawfish ettouffe one time that was out of this world.
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm... I have a hard time getting turkeys done on time. Even with thermometers, sticking them in various places like you're supposed to, something's always undercooked.
