I am a married mom of 3 teenagers living in Nashville, TN.
My favorite things to cook
I like trying new things to keep all the time spent in the kitchen more lively. I've been freezing more and have gotten better at planning ahead.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite thing about being in the kitchen is that my family is always up for trying something new and they appreciate any effort! The kids gravitate to the kitchen and it seems they talk about their day or what's on their mind more easily there.
My cooking triumphs
I have celiac so learning to cook quick, affordable and easy week night meals without pasta/bread has been interesting. I appreciate that this diagnosis has forced me to use less processed food and lots of fresh vegetables and fruit.
My cooking tragedies
Oh goodness, how about my first turkey (at age 20) that I cooked with the bag of innards still inside? Or the second turkey that I didn't thaw long enough before the big day (at age 21)? Or the many holiday meals that didn't come together all at the same time?
