Wife and mom of 3. Love cooking. Hate the cleanup, but I clean as I go. I love trying new ethnic dishes, but also cling to comfort foods.
My favorite things to cook
Asian meals, steamed rice with an impressive, flavorful main dish. I love braised anything. I try to keep things heart healthy for my family during the week and have an "anything we want" night on the weekends.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Paula Deen's pot roast is the best and we have this at least 2 x's a month. We always eat dinner together. We pray together and enjoy cooking together. I try to include my kids in the process because they seem to be more likely to try new things that way.
My cooking triumphs
Winging it while making white clam chowder and having it turn out great.
My cooking tragedies
Getting distracted and not pulling things out of the oven before they turn to jerky.
