I work full time, and am always looking for quick things to make for dinner for my teenage son and my boyfriend. I also am recently looking for gluten free recipes and am trying to get away from eating so much meat.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! cheesecake, cookies and pie. I also love to try the old style cooking like stuffed cabbage, stroganoff, paprikash. Any thing new is great too
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family really wasn't known for cooking. I've pretty much taught myself

I didn't know the potatoes would turn to sand.... nobody ever suggests I bring potatoes again. Ah! we live and learn
