Cooking has really become a joy since I became a mother. Its so nice to cook for my family because they really enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and its funny because I HATE measuring stuff, but as long as I follow the basics I have learned improvising and tweaking will come out nicely. I like making soups and stews, chilis and pastas. I also really like spanish food....just wish my husband did!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother always made the best stuffing for Thanksgiving and I make it every year!
My cooking triumphs
I don't think I was ever prouder than my first whole roasted Thanksgiving turkey....I was so afraid that I wouldnt turn out and Thanksgiving would be ruined, but it turned out great to my suprise.
My cooking tragedies
Most of my tragedies have been through use of a slow cooker...The idea of using one was so appealing...throw stuff in, dinners ready when you get home....how easy and fool proof can you get, right? Well, wrong. I dont know why things turn out so gross in a slow cooker sometimes, but they do...
