My name is Weeden I am 25 yrs old and a stay at home mom/ housewife. I have a little boy who is 5 and a little girl who is 18 months old. I love to cook for my family it gives me great satifaction and pride. There is nothing that beats a homemade meal.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook everything. I usually leave the outdoor grilling to my spouse, he isn't handy in the kitchen but really know how to grill a steak. I cook everything from chicken to shrimp and crab. I also like to try out new recipes. I am pretty adventurous when it comes to the kitchen
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mothers meatloaf, I usually dont stray far from her meatloaf recipe. her awesome green chili burros(burritos) that I still cant make. She also made awsome french toast, but i can never seem to make mine quite like hers
My cooking triumphs
My family loves my enchiladas, I am sure it is their favorite meal that i make. They also love when i make meatloaf,pork chops and shrimp. For side dishes I know that my mashed potatoes beat out the rest. I never use instant mash potatoes.
My cooking tragedies
I have had only a few. One time i made the enchilada sauce way to hot. I must have went over board on the chili powder. My soon to be brother-in-law at the time was over for his first dinner at the time. The food was so hot they couldn't eat it, and we ended up going to a resturant that night. how embarrsing! Another one is when I made stuffed pasta shells and left the plastic lid on the casserole dish. I was so busy doing other things I spaced it out. Halfway through cook time I went to check on the shells and saw the plastic melted mess. That was horrible! Not to mention I had spent an hour making the shells and I lost the lid to my casserole dish ;)
