I am a wife and mother of a 16 year old son and a 14 year old daughter. I love to cook BUT hate to clean so the rule in my house is "if you cook, you don't have to clean." This makes it fun for my family to want to cook and try out new recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything super quick and super easy since we have such busy schedules.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves Taco night. I make hard-shell and soft tacos and set out all of the fixings so everyone can build their own tacos. Taco night also means brownies for dessert which I always make with applesauce in place of oil.
My cooking triumphs
When I cook a meal as a theme for a family movie that we all watch either outside with the projector or inside in the family room.
My cooking tragedies
I have never cooked a whole chicken or turkey before :( The Thanksgiving and Christmas tradition of serving turkey falls on my mom...some day, I may have to give it a try.
