I moved out of my parents house as a teenager and my Mom sent me with a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook and folder of our family recipes. I've been cooking ever since! I've been married for going on 13 years and have 3 growing boys I love to cook for! I work full time as a critical care nurse, but it's only 3 days a week, so the rest of the time I'm cooking away...
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I'll bake anything. I'm not the greatest decorator, but I'm working on it. I also participate in pot-lucks at least once a month at work. I make dinner every night and I'm always trying to come up new things the family will love.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays! We love to cook for each other. My favorite has got to be the thousands of Christmas cookies my Mom and I get together every year to spend a few days baking together.
My cooking triumphs
My Bean Dip is such a popular hit at pot-lucks and gets requested so often that it's usually what I end up making. And my christmas cookies are asked for all year round!
My cooking tragedies
When I first got married my husband used to throw things away alot. :) And I made a cake for my Mom's birthday last year that fell apart before we got to eat it...
