I am a happily married mother of 3 awesome kids. My husband is in the Army so each meal together is a special event. I guess that's why I enjoy cooking so much.
My favorite things to cook
I grew up a meat and potatoes gal, but I have branched out in the last several years. I'm willing to try any dish once, but I usually have to put my own "spin" on it. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My 10 year old daughter loves to cook as well so we've created our own tradition of cooking side by side. It doesn't matter if it's a holiday feast or just a quick weeknight meal that we're throwing together. She pretends that we have our own cooking show while we're cooking and it's hysterical to listen to her "talk" to the audience!
My cooking triumphs
Making only my 2nd turkey for Thanksgiving for my family of 5 and 10 single soldiers. Everything came out perfect and I was really proud of myself that day.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking is a live and learn kinda thing so there are too many disasters to list here. :)
