I'm a mother of 2 boys, ages 10 & 13. I work part-time as a hair stylist and the rest of my time is spent with my family and friends. I am involved with the local Junior League and participate in various charity work. I also love to read and exercise. In addition, I always look forward to my Monday night bible study group which restores me!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I am always interested in tasty new recipes that can be made more healthy without compromising texture and taste, so I am refining my skills with that in mind right now. I also love quick and easy main dish and grilled meat recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
This is sad, but we have no real "traditions" in our family. We spend our holidays with our extended family and we all bring a dish usually. My kids love my (everyday requested) breakfast burritos and my special grilled pork chops!
My cooking triumphs
The day I mastered grilling various meats on my gas grill without overcooking and making everything too dry!!!
My cooking tragedies
Nothing is worse than a new recipe you try with great anticipation and it ends up a flop with your family! Thankfully I know what they like and that hasn't happened too frequently!
