I'm a mom cooking for a family of 6. Cooking is my creative outlet.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook sweets. Cookies, brownies, cinnamon rolls, etc. I bake all our bread - delicious 100% whole grain bread from wheat I grind myself. I'm trying to cook more healthy meals, but keep getting sucked in by the all the recipes for delicious junk food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make yummy rolls for all holidays. I also make several delicious soups, and keep extras in the freezer for lunches. I like to make freezer meals or at least meal starters to make it easier to get dinner on the table. I love trying new recipes (as long as I have the time.)
My cooking triumphs
I like trying "clones" of restaurant meals and love it when I can make something that's restaurant-worthy. I also love substituting healthier ingredients in things.
My cooking tragedies
There have been many over the years, but that's how you learn! You never make the same mistake twice.
