After reading another bloggers story concerning “Sunday Dinners” I began thinking back to memories of my childhood. My parents divorced when I was 2 years old. I don’t remember them being together so the divorce didn’t immediately have an effect on me. As the years…
Granny and I
Granny making fruitcake
I am a happily married stay at home mom. I love spending time with my husband whether it is just staying at home watching movies or going out shopping. I love to cook and try new recipes. My husband is a very picky eater and he doesn't eat much of a variety. I mainly cook for myself since my daughter is less than a year old so I enjoy making recipes that are small so there is not much waste.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies, cakes and other sweet treats but I try to avoid making too many because I want to eat too much of them! :) I am also an avid bread maker and enjoy trying out new bread recipes. I also love tex-mex and italian recipes. Lately I have been experimenting with new seasonings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite memories are those of baking around the holidays when I was a child. My grandmother would always make the best pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas. My mother made the best Turkey and Dressing and Scallopped Potatoes that are to die for. I still enjoy cooking around the holidays. I can't wait until my little one(s) are old enough to help me in the kitchen and start our own family traditions.
My cooking triumphs
Everytime I make a recipe that turns out great I consider that a triumph. So I have many triumphs in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
Recently it was cooking a hamburger and it looked perfectly done on the outside but was raw inside. Yuck!
