I am a mom to one boy and a wife to another, and boys like to eat! I am lucky that they are both like (or at least are tolerant of) my adventerous cooking selections. I am also a Type 1 diabetic, so I try to limit my intake of carbs. Let's be honest, though. Carbs are like my secret love affair...sometimes (okay a lot of times) I sneak some.
My favorite things to cook
We like all things chicken in this family, but my true passion is in refined carbs...oh sweet love of cakes, cookies, and breads! You are an enemy to my diet, but I never liked that diet anyways... Seriously, though, I love to bake, with yeast breads at the top of the list. There's just something about getting your hands dirty...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pie, pie, pie. Every special occasion is an occasion special enough for pie. I also love that my mom made everything from scratch. Your stomach loves any food just a little bit more when you put a little heart into it!
My cooking triumphs
So far...I don't think anything I've cooked is spectacular enough to be called a triumph. Once I make popovers and don't burn them, I'll let you know. Those things are cursed. Same thing with oven fries. Why are they never crispy?
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies? That's a little harsh, right? But alas, I have failed a little bit at some things. Like when I burnt eggs...do you know how bad burt eggs smell?!
