Married, work 30 hours a week outside the home, and have two boys, 8 and 5.
My favorite things to cook
Things with easy to follow recipes and not a lot of ingredients to buy. My specialties are the tortilla soup that I just mastered and my delicious tuna noodle casserole.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Don't really have any except for green bean casserole that I am responsible for making each Thanksgiving for my extended family. Cooking kind of intimidates me and with two boys running around it needs to be a quick recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I really am proud of the tortilla soup that I have been making even though it is very quick and super easy, even for my standards. I also have made a salsa a couple of times that has turned out really well. I even tried adding green olives to it and that was a hit!!
My cooking tragedies
Once, and don't tell anyone, I was cooking spaghetti and watching a show in the next room over and completely forgot about the food until my husband walked in and asked "What's that smell?"
