I am a single mom to one son who is the best inspiration for me, ever. I have been cooking for years now but just recently started cooking "for real"! I love trying new recipes and making things from scratch. I also LOVE cooking for my family! I do have a oouple of stand-by recipes but on a day to day basis, we love trying new recipes and I visit Allrecipes daily. I am always trying to learn new tips and techniques, and try to include my 13 year old son whenever possible. I am learning that, cooking is truly becoming my passion!
My favorite things to cook
When I was married, my husband always did ALL the grilling, but since then, I have learned how to grill better than him! I am super proud when he comes over and I can serve him a super-moist steak, chicken, or piece of fish. Makes me proud!!! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grilling burgers for the 4th of July that eveyone (still!!) raves about!!
My cooking triumphs
I feel most proud when my son can make something wonderful without my help, which he has done on several occasions. I love sharing my love of cooking with him, and hope he carries it through his life!!
My cooking tragedies
Last year's Christmas turkey just wouldn't cook. It ruined our Christmas dinner but I took the carcass and leftover meat to make the most wonderful Turkey Soup. I shared it with my parents and brother's family for the most wonderful After Chritmas Turkey Soup ever!!
