I'm Mom to four and Wife to one. I'm a System Administrator by day and a Homemaking Goddess by night.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is cakes and desserts. I can jam all day and night baking and decorating cakes. Fun, fun! I also like to explore kid friendly meals and love the heck outta my slow-cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids get to design their own birthday cakes as well as choose whatever they want for their birthday dinner. We have a lot of fun with this and they've been known to go a little crazy!
My cooking triumphs
A three tier cake with eight satellite cakes, each with lace chocolate overlays. I also won a county contest once and they put my winning cake in a clear box in the middle of a mall.. wild!
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy, finding the toddler sitting on the dining room table eating the giant baby shower cake due to be delivered in less than an hour. I have also accidently swapped salt for sugar and burned things to a toasty black crisp! The best though, was catching the oven on fire on Thanksgiving and having the firefighters save the day (but not the dinner!) :)
