I am a 33 y/o mother of two, divorced and now single. I work as a registered nurse on the neurology unit of a busy hospital.
My favorite things to cook
I am currently delving into the world of whole foods, vegetarian and vegan cooking and baking. Trying to do my part to heal the world, as well as my body. Skinny Bitches Unite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I rarely make the same thing twice. Too boring. My cookbook collection rivals that of Borders. My kids love when I make muffins, cookies and cakes, (of course), and are usually game to try new things
My cooking triumphs
I made a to-die-for spiced banana cake with lemon cream cheese frosting for my 9 yr old neice's birthday party. A great pumpkin dessert that my dad said rivaled his mother's on Thanksgiving. I grill pretty good, will be missing that now that I don't eat meat anymore.
My cooking tragedies
Well, having small children (both boys, 5 & 7 yrs old) it is hit or miss. they can be picky with dinners. the best thing ever is when my little one tells me, "mama, your the best cooker ever!" nothing better than that, i tell you. i am definately a better baker than i am a cook, but one cannot live on muffins alone. i've tried.
