About Me
My boys recently left the nest and headed for college, my BF of many many years recently moved in, so I'm learning to cook for 2 instead of 4. So far, I'm doing okay, but I miss cooking for my kiddos. I love the weekends they come home and I can make all of their favorites.
My favorite things to cook
With my kiddos gone most of the time, and a fairly empty social calendar, I am cooking more and rarely making the same dish twice. I also love finding new twists on old favorites and searching through my recipe box for recipes I want to try but knew the kiddos wouldn't eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas my entire family gets together to make tons of cookies. All of my aunts, cousin's, their kids, my papaw and close friends. Since I live halfway across the country and haven't been able to participate for several years, I started having my own "cookie day" with my friends and their children. I love having everyone over and the smell of all the baking cookies is so homey and comforting.
My cooking triumphs
I consider any meal that my pickiest eater will eat to be a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
I'm sure we've all done this...I was cooking a special meal for a special person in my life and accidentally turned up the wrong burner and burned the main meal to the point that it's inedible. I HATE it when that happens. LOL
