I am a wife and mother in the midwest. I love to cook and enjoy making home cooked meals for my family and friends. I like trying new things and get 99% of my recipes from allrecipes.com
My favorite things to cook
I love making desserts and sweets. Even though I can not eat foods high in sugar or fat, I enjoy making them for my family and friends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
summer grilling is always a family event. My husband loves to cook on the grill and I like to do the prep on the food that we grill.
My cooking triumphs
I love proving to people that healthy food can taste WONDERFUL! The first time I made my husband and son a healthy dinner that they devoured was awesome.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a lot over the years. The one that stands out the most is my son's 3rd birthday cake. He wanted strawberry cake and I tried a new recipe that turned out horrible! We ended up buying him a cake from the grocery store... and it wasn't strawberry :(
