I am married with 3 fun children. My daughters are on their way to college soon and my son is 7 and busy! I teach Kindergarten full time. I love to cook new things but hate to clean up.
My favorite things to cook
Whatever sounds good that day, bread is always good! I don't like sweets too much though so I only do them for others.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned how to do home-canning from Mom and bottle lots of salsa every fall. I grow the tomatoes, peppers, onions and cilantro in my garden.
My cooking triumphs
It's a triumph if my husband and all three kids like it! My biggest joy lately is my 7 yr old son's night to cook. On Tuesday nights I help him cook dinner for the family and he always loves what he cooks. I am so proud of him and he is already starting to love cooking, I know that someday his wife and children will thank me ;)
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were first married I tried to make pancakes from a mix and followed the recipe. They were so thick and disgusting. Good thing my husband had already tasted my cooking or I think he might have run the other way! The problem...I had never made any pancakes before because my sister was so good at making pancakes from scratch that I never had to.
