I am a stay at home mom. We have a daughter that will be turning 8 next month (3/2010) and a son that will be 4 (5/2010). I love to cook & try new dishes. My kids try everything I cook and usually love it. There have been a few things that are good but not "family favorites".
My favorite things to cook
Anything & everything! I love to test my skills with new things. I do have a recipe from a friend for enchilada's that I have become "famous" for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my grandma, mom, aunt, sister & cousin get together at my grandma's house for a weekend & make candy. My daughter is starting to help some & my cousins daughters are still too young but I'm sure they'll be joining in in a few years. We make everything from peanut clusters and fudge (choc & peanut butter) to "paydays", "snickers" and almond roca (my fave!)
My cooking triumphs
I made my first "real" cheesecake just yesterday. I was nervous due to some of the reviews but it turned out awesome! My husband even said he was impressed & that's hard to do!
My cooking tragedies
I'm not sure I've had any "tragedies"....give me time, I'm sure I will. :)
