I'm a military wife and a mother of four. We move a lot and in each new area, we find new things we like to try. Being in Cali now means more of a sustainable living kind of lifestyle, which is quite fun! I am a certified book nerd and I love trying new recipes for my family to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna...hands down. It's relatively simple and it tastes so delicious when it's all finished. I've started making our own bread recently and am enjoying learning the fine art of that process.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family never really had any cooking traditions. The biggest tradition was to stay out of the kitchen when someone was cooking. I'm trying to break that habit so that I can teach my kids how to cook and enjoy it.
My cooking triumphs
It would have to be my very first loaf of bread that I made. My husband took it to share with his colleagues and wound up coming home with requests for more bread from several people. They all thought it was delicious!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I ever tried making potato soup. I scorched the base mixture and didn't realize it until it was all done. Oh, it was horrid! I wound up pouring it all down the disposer and making sandwiches for dinner.
