Well, I'm an army wife annd a new mom. I have a pretty hectic life with just those two elements. I love too cook, though I have to say I'm terrible at following most recipes. I love this site because I can search an ingridient I want to use and get a ton of ideas for it!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken enchiladas. Chinese food. I love making up my own marinades. Pot roast and pulled pork in the crock pot
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking with my husband whenever we get a chanc to do it together!
My cooking triumphs
Corned Beef on St. Patricks Day! That was the largest hunk of meat I'd ever attempted to cook, and it took an hour longer then it should have, along with two phone calls to my mother-in-law and one to my mom. But in the end, it was nothing less then triumphant!
My cooking tragedies
Up at my cabin, we didn't have much to work with, so my friend and I tried to make bread type food over the campfire we had going in the yard. The bread was edible, but tasteless, so we made it again with some garlic powder for taste. We also had thawed chicken breast from the freezer, and cooked that in a pan over the fire. Black on the outside and pink on the inside. Needless to say we went to sleep hungry that night! We did learn that it's darn near impossible to cook chicken over a fire though. Second batch of bread turned out pretty tasty however.
