I am a working Mom, and I would much rather pick dinner up on the way home than try to cook something. However, I am becoming more concerned with nutrition, and safety of take-out food.
My favorite things to cook
Anything quick and tasty. I do not own an oven. I have a radiant heat microwave and glass cook top stove. I have an electric Dutch oven for the big things like turkey and ham, but only use it twice a year.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas and Thanksgiving are family meals, meaning that my brother's family and parents all bring something to the table. Its fun, and always different.
My cooking triumphs
My triumph is that I have perseverance. As long as I follow a recipe, I'm okay...but beyond that...well...see below.
My cooking tragedies
Other than catching the stove (old) on fire on Christmas Eve a couple of years ago, every meal I make is a tragedy. I just don't understand how to cook.
