I am a mother to two, and wife. I have a BS in Web Design. Currently living in Durham New Hampshire! I love my new kitchen, it has so much room. It's the first large kitchen I've ever had. I love planning meals far ahead. Freezer meals, canning and cooking! I am not a baker. I have no artistic talent when it comes to baking and so cakes, especially, are not my thing!
My husband is in the Air Force, when he is gone, it's hard to be motivated to -really- cook. The kids prefer the simpler stuff, and oddly, our eating habits become healthier. But, when my husband is home it seems I spend most of the day in the kitchen - which is fine with me. I love it both ways!
My favorite things to cook
It really varies. I love cooking some days and others not so much. It seems each month I find a new fave recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
With my little one now 4 he becomes my biggest helper in the kitchen. I cannot even get a glass of water without him asking, "Can I be the lunch helper today?" I love it!
My cooking tragedies
I often try to figure out a recipe on my own first. So when I tried to duplicate a beloved Lime Rice I had at a local Indian Restaurant, THAT was a disaster!
