I am the mother of 3 daughters and the wife of a wonderful man who loves my cooking and compliments it all the time.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have favorites of many things but I love to cook dinner foods. I used to love to bake when I first started cooking but found the thrill in the creativity of cooking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are creating traditions as we go. Our favorite and most exciting time of year is the fall and winter. We love the foods that are associtated with it.
My cooking triumphs
Making foods that my family loves. I love to try new foods all the time. Especially new twists on favorites. My greatest moment came when my girls were asked to write down their favorite foods that I make. Their list only took ten minutes and was a page and a half long. While other momm's kids struggled to find more than one or two! I have just mastered or at least tamed cooking rice! (2008) It has taken 20+ years for me to be able to say that and now I can hold my head up when I serve it.
My cooking tragedies
When I was young and tried to bake sugar cookies and they all ran together and were full of holes, I hadn't added the baking powder. I am notoriously bad (self imposed) at making rice (not any more!!) and cooking a steak. I can season a steak well but I always over cook it.
