So, I'm a married mother of two delightful daughters. I have always been blessed with luck enough to have boyfriends (including my hubby) who liked, and were good at cooking. I hated cooking and refused to do it! When I quit my job for a while and stayed home, I thought it was only fair I begin. Come to find, I actually enjoy it and am not half bad! Learning more every day!
My favorite things to cook
I like experimenting with curry chicken (great with peanut butter!) and interesting side-dishes. I hate when a recipe requires many separate cooking steps = much more clean-up at the end! I end up doing dishes before AND after dinner!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The last couple years it has become my duty to provide a pumpkin cheesecake for Thanksgiving. It feels nice to be able to contribute something that everyone anticipates!
My cooking triumphs
My family LOVES my chicken picatta! Well, I call it garlic chicken so my 5 1/2 yr old doesn't turn up her nose (she knows she likes garlic bread)! I'm in love with my curry chicken - I don't care if my kids like it or not!!
My cooking tragedies
Usually this would mean I burned something, or otherwise mis-read a recipe :)
