I'm a SAHM of three, and an army wife. I teach gymnastics to little ones part-time, and am a Taste of Home Field Editor.
I'm also teaching the kids how to cook. They get to plan a menu, make out the shopping list, check to see which items we have at home, do price comparison shopping when they pick out their items, and make the meal with as little help as possible. They have done an awesome job so far!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Cookies, cakes, desserts. I also enjoy grilling, and making crock pot meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and grandma were huge into baking. I loved to sit in the kitchen on a Saturday afternoon learning their secrets and licking the beaters.
My cooking triumphs
Sending cookies to my husband in Iraq, and his buddies not believing they are homemade! They swore they HAD to be from a bakery :)
My cooking tragedies
My first Father's Day with my husband I made him brats and potato salad. Horrible, horrible potato salad. Potatoes were cooked far too long and I added too much mayo. It was mashed potatoes with mayo. I haven't attempted it since!
