I am a stay at home mother of four. I grew up in a family that did a lot of cooking from a box an I swore I would never be that way and have pretty well stuck to it. I am always trying something new, and when I find something in a restaurant or elsewhere that I really like I will actually research how to make it myself. I love cooking always have, unfortunately for me other than the lil bit I absorbed through years of watching my grandparents cook, or the lil I got out of home ec. classes, I have taught myself everything. Luckily for everyone else it seems to be something I have a knack for, because I can take random stuff from the cupboard and make it a meal.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook carry actually, I guess it would have to be what ever new food I have tried and decided I needed to make lol.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving we gather as a family. It used to be at my Grandparents' home, then my mom's. All the ladies in the house would be gathered in the kitchen working on something, this is where I absorbed alot of what I know about cooking.
My cooking triumphs
During those hard times when we have had to skrimp and make do with what lil bit we had around the house, and what we got from food pantries, I was able to take completely random stuff and turn it into great meals.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make instant mashed potatoes, lol. Not sure what I do wrong but they always come out funky lol.
