I work full time and have three young children. I don't have time for gourmet cooking and currently prefer slow cookers and meals that don't take long. My kids are pretty good trying new things, but I can't spend all night in the kitchen chopping and measuring lots of ingredients. Anything that I can prepare ahead of time is helpful! Oh, and my husband likes to eat low-carb.
My favorite things to cook
Mushrooms, rice, soups, anything with a sauce for dipping
My cooking tragedies
It took me 3 tries to make guacamole - I kept messing it up because I couldn't mash the avocado. I finally figured out not to refrigerate it!
