I was forced to start cooking when I got married and realized my husband didn't know how to cook either! I used to ruin everything I tried to make in the kitchen, whether it was heating up soup or making toast. But I will never forget the very first time I made something that was actually edible!!
My favorite things to cook
Are usually things that are quick and easy yet taste delicious. I love to make one skillet meals usually with chicken, rice or pasta, veggies, and different kinds of sauces/seasonings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making what seems like thousands of cookies at Christmas time and decorating them with the whole family, and it has been a joy to include my 3 year old son in this tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Any time I try out a new recipe and my family loves it, it is a triumph for me! My most recent triumphs have come from Jessica Seinfeld's new cook book "Deceptively Delicious"- because the recipes are not only delicious and easy but they are healthy as well!
My cooking tragedies
Pretty much everything I made my first few months of cooking!!!!
