I am a mother of two very picky kids. One teenager who had decided not to eat vegetables anymore. My other a 5 year old who is allergic to dairy. This creates quite a challenge when preparing meals. I am constantly tring to learn new ways to substitute items for dairy and still make the recipes work and taste great.
My favorite things to cook
I love eggplant and love the different ways to make it. I also love to make soups and try new recipes all the time. I also love to bake and try to make it a tradition to cook with my children and create lasting memories.
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas we have specialty dishes that have been handed down throught the generations and that makes it very personal. We also have an outrageous carrot cake that we always make a decorate for family weddings.
My cooking triumphs
I love taking a recipe and making it my own.
My cooking tragedies
Don't you just hate it when you have prepared the same dish multiple times and it always comes out great until you try to cook it for someone and impress them and the whole thing comes out wrong. How do you figure?
