I am a busy mom of two! I have decided to go back to school and am currently working on my RN. Sooo, quick and easy meals work best for me. My husband is really a "meat and potatoes" kinda guy so I make a lot of traditional hearty meals. Occasionally I sneak something outrageous onto the table!
My favorite things to cook
I love salads and casseroles. I enjoy baking but it's not really one of my better strengths!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family has an awesome homemade noodle recipe that I enjoy making atleast 4 times a year. I was 12 when my mom taught me. My daughter is 10 and is taking a big interest into helping in the kitchen. She's going to learn to make noodles this summer.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I put a meal on the table and the whole family tells me how much they love it.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made southern fried chicken with milk gravy. My husband and I were just married and it was his favorite meal his mom made. I tried my best, but the chicken was EXTRA crispy yet bloody inside and the milk gravy would have worked great as wallpaper paste!!
