I have a busy life with 3 little ones, therefore I have to try to squeeze cooking into my schedule. I enjoy cooking, but don't enjoy the dishes afterward!
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is homemade meatloaf and mashed potatoes. It's one of the few things I don't use a recipe for & is almost always delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my sisters & I try to get together to bake cookies before Christmas; we don't always get many cookies made but we have fun!
My cooking triumphs
I guess I must not have improved too much in my cooking techniques because the only "triumph" I can think of right now is the meatloaf & mashed potatoes that I have been making since I've been married!
My cooking tragedies
My most memorable cooking "tragedy" was when I was first married. I grew up with 12 brothers/sisters (some "real" some "step"), so I was used to watching my step-Mom make large quantities of food. One of the first suppers I made for my husband was spaghetti; I thought I was making a "small" amount when I used a whole box of spagetti & jar of sauce! We were eating spagetti for WEEKS!
