I'm a full time working mother of two boys and a husband. My oldest son is a sophomore at Texas A&M, so is only home on occasion. I'm a teacher so my schedule is a little better than most, but I'm still constantly searching for quick, delicious, healthy recipes to cook for my family. My husband and I have been married for 24 years and have two lovely sons aged 19 & 14 (soon to be 20 & 15). We are all foodies. Food makes us happy. My boys and husband have been known to break out into a "happy dance" when tasting something delicious. It's a joy cooking for a family that appreciates and enjoys food as much as mine.
My favorite things to cook
I have recently discovered cast iron cooking and am immensely enjoying cooking in my Le Creuset cast iron pots. We love carnitas, brisket, braised pork, soups and stews.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We like soups, stews, and braised meats during the cooler months, and enjoy cooking on the BBQ during our hot summer months. Mexican, Italian, and Irish recipes are a staple in our cooking repertoire.
My cooking triumphs
Carnitas, eggplant parmesan, homemade BBQ sauce, smoky brisket, chicken tortilla soup
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention from the earlier years...
