I am a mother of a newborn. I love cooking when I have time, but I especially love baking! The holidays are a favorite time of the year for me to cook for my family. I work with college students and they love my cookies. My husband loves my "Cowboy Cookies." Another specialty of mine is "She Crab Soup." ...this is also another favorite thing of mine...making soups. Soups on warm autumn nights! I am looking forward to when my daugther is old enough to start baking...I will start teaching her, even when she is a toddler. I have a favorite cookbook, but it's not one that would be known by many. It's a church cookbook that was given to me by my family. "Covenant Life Church Cookbook" is one I use ALL the time. It has THE best recipies in it for every meal.
