About this Cook
I work full time and I am out of town for work approximately 2-3 nights per week. On the weekend, I enjoy cooking all day either making meals for the week ahead or baking. I have three children and I have been married for almost 18 years.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making Mexican and Asian dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having my kids help me make a holiday meal.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my family says "good dinner".
My cooking tragedies
Making my first turkey for Thanksgiving and dating my husband. I had put on false nails, but he didn't know they were false until I took the turkey out of the oven to baste it and it slid in the pan making me lose my grip. I tried to grab the pan but my nails all popped off and the turkey went to the floor. The cat jumped in and my "now" husband and I had a good laugh.
