I am a mom first and foremost! I have a wonderful 8-year old son. We also have a hairy child in our home now. She is a long-haired dachshund named Crystal. We live in the Baltimore area but are looking to move soon!
As for cooking... I have been cooking since I was a child. I used to cook for my parties and sleepovers when I was a preteen. Then I went on to bigger and better things like being a housewife and cooking every day, and then cooking school as part of my Associates Degree. Now I still cook for my family as much as possible, but it's hard with a full-time job and trying to finish my Bachelor's part-time.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. But, as for daily dinners, they need to be quick, easy, and healthy! I cook Italian meals at least once a week. They are tasty, easy and family favorites!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I ALWAYS cook the big family meal on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. I also picked up a St. Patty's Day tradition of corned beef and cabbage from my mother... even though we aren't a bit Irish :)
My cooking triumphs
