I'm a registered nurse, happy wife of 27 years and mom to two daughters. I love cooking for my family and friends and sharing goodies with my co-workers. So many dishes and so little time to play in my kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook almost anything! I like trying new dishes, and new cuisines. I enjoy having friends and family over and pampering them with wholesome foods. I'm not a real strong baker, so I like to challenge myself with new recipes and techniques.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love preparing dishes handed down to me by my Gram. It gives me such a sense of comfort and connection making her dishes, and remembering happy days.
My cooking triumphs
I planned and prepared the teacher's luncheon at my daughters' school....a made from scratch taco bar complete with pork carnitas and refried beans. I was so pleased (and relieved) everything came out perfect....I received many compliments! It was the first time I had ever cooked for 60 people.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted a crockpot macaroni and cheese recipe that came out so horrible my youngest daughter and I ended up eating bread and butter for dinner....hubby and oldest daughter managed to eat the stuff and surprisingly lived to tell about it! Such a waste of good cheese :(
