My husband and I have two children who are great eaters and involved in the kitchen. We also have an adorable Maltese, Simon, who would like to be more involved in the kitchen. :o) I am a metal carport web designer. I just started working from home, which will help me expand my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
Slow Cooker and Casserole recipes are a big hit with the family. Favorite types of food include Italian and Mediterranean with an inclusion of Southern. I really love the slow cooker in all forms. It just makes sense and it smells so good to come home to. Any kind of healthy cooking is appealing - I am open!
My favorite family cooking traditions
As a child, there were two main favorite meals served: meatloaf, baked potatoes and cream style corn. The second was pork chops, macaroni & cheese and peas. These were special occasion meals. I would like to make more new traditions for my family.
My cooking triumphs
People have said they like my home made apple pie. I like to use Braeburn apples or Pink Lady. Washington apples cannot be beat! Mainly I try to be willing to switch things up now and then and not limit myself while trying to learn from others.
My cooking tragedies
Whew, humbling here, hair in the food! Yes, I have done it. But if I mess up (cooking in general), that is a learning experience and hopefully it helps make me better. So I keep on going to bigger and better things.
