I am a stay at home mother of two little girls both under the age of five. I mostly cook three meals a day for myself, my husband and our girls.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything! I especially love cooking anything new we haven't already tried. My kids are so awesome about trying new things and know the rules about saying they don't like something before they've tried it! A top favorite in our household though is definitely homemade stews, soups and chili's! Anything in a really big pot that cooks all day YUM!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I do have a feeling that comes over me anytime I make a recipe my mom would make growing up that I must make it just the way she did...and yes it's always just right! My mother made me a hand written cook book from her kitchen and favorite recipes for Christmas 2007...I cherish it and use it quite often! Thanks mom!!
My cooking triumphs
I have been a better and better cook every year that has gone by. We have tried many new recipes and many new ingredients that we hadn't ever before. I also realized the truth in the fact that if you don't like something and you give it a try several times it is so true you will in fact begin to like it!! This worked for me with coleslaw, tomatoes and tuna among many other types of food I didn't care for.
My cooking tragedies
hmmmm the last tragedy I faced when it came to cooking was when I first started out. I had just met my husband and he had to teach me how to make a grilled cheese HAHAHA!!! This was many years ago and I have accomplished sooo much over the years thank goodness for my husband and kids huh!?!!
