I am a mom of 6 grown kids & grandma to 6 grandkids. I have always loved to cook, and spent most of my life making "kid friendly" meals. Over the past few years I have revved up our menus and am REALLY enjoying it now! My husband of 24 years is my cooking accomplice and we have a lot of fun! I think my kids for the most part have acquired my love of cooking (& eating!)also, which makes me very happy!
My favorite things to cook
I like making just about anything with fresh veggies in the summer! All kinds of fresh veggie pasta sauces, soups, breads (when in the mood), lol, I think I love cooking whatever I'm making at the time, for the most part.. Plus when you are sharing the experience with someone you love, well that helps too. ;)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was full Ukrainian and made some incredible dishes! So several of our family's comfort foods come from that region. My hubby's dad used to help out in the kitchen too, so I guess that is now a tradition in our family. Come to think of it, my daughter's husband cooks with her too.. So now that it's 3 generations, I think it's formally a tradition!
My cooking triumphs
Wow, lets see.. Anytime something turns out beautiful & delishous I feel triumphant. On a personal note; I think I've finally perfected my vegetarian spaghetti sauce! It took me years of experimenting, but I think I'm finally there! Whoo Hoo!! lol
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy... There have been a few.. lol If I could only make them into funny stories... Just know, that on more than one occation, we had pizza for dinner instead... lol
