I'm a full-time working mother of 2 sons, Laurence 10 years and Drake 7 years. I was a stay-at-home mom for five years in which I spent much of my time experimenting with recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Crockpot cooking - I've made everything in a crockpot including desserts and beverages - I would classify myself as an expert in slow cooking. Also, anything with a lot of spice (and I mean hot, burn your mouth spices).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm notorious for making meals for families who just had a baby, in the hospital, etc. Also, I love a good challenge. There is no cuisine that I won't attempt.
My cooking triumphs
So many to count :) I pulled off a huge authentic Texas BBQ feast recently, authentic Irish dinner (not corn beef and cabbage but lamb stew, colcannon, soda bread, etc.). I've made an authentic West African 5 course meal, too!
My cooking tragedies
Guacamole - I still can't pick the right avocados...I give up! I have tried over 5x and STILL can't make it work.
