I'm a married mom of one beautiful 2 year old boy. Love to cook; Seriously thought of going to school for it but things didn't pan out that way.. I like to try new things and am willing to eat just about anything new.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, pastas, lasagna, ziti, brownies, cupcakes, meatloaf, roasts, ham, chops, deep fryed.. anything just about, copy cat restaurant recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's actually kind of funny, but I never cared for my mothers cooking, or my grandmother's. I developed a taste for it on my own, tried different recipes out of old recipe books my father collected or that I got from book sales. Ofcourse not everything came out good, not always because I messed up the recipe, but not everything is my taste. When I was dating my husband the first meal I made for him was my meat lasagna. He loved it!
My cooking triumphs
Last THankgiving, (2007) was my first thanksgiving to cook all by myself.. needless to say, while most first thanksgivings are less than perfect.. mine couldnt have been more perfect.. all the dishes came out fantastic.. the turkey came out moist.. just bird perfection. The only draw back was when my sister in law turned a lidless container of coolwhip upside down and it went everywhere! LOL
My cooking tragedies
Me and polenta = disaster! I tried a minestrone soup recipe and it was awful.. awful
