I am a married working mom with little time to spare, who loves quick, easy dishes with a southern flair.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in a crockpot, appetizers, deserts, southern dishes, and my Grandma's chicken noodles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have only a few dishes handed down in the family, but love to make my Grandmother's noodles, and several of my mom's best dishes, too.
My cooking triumphs
1)Grilling swordfish, and convincing my VERY picky child it was chicken.
2)Pureeing veggies so the kids don't know what they are eating.
3)Coming up with new twists on favorite dishes so that my family never gets bored with my cooking.
My cooking tragedies
I have two...
1) I made spaghetti for my new husband on our honeymoon. When I didn't make enough sauce, he informed me that "his momma didn't make it like that". I informed him he needed to go talk to his momma, then! lol (It was pretty bad sauce!)
2)I was in a hurry, and decided to make my own version of Tuna helper for my son and husband. It was so disgusting. My cherished ones took one good look, one good sniff and headed straight for McDonald's! They wouldn't touch it.
