I try (but not TOO hard) to cook healthy meals, but I also want dinner to be mostly fun and yummy. We all sit down to eat dinner as a family every single night, which is something I will try to continue even as my kids become teenagers.
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna! I have made all different kinds, never using a recipe, and it is always a huge hit.
Also carrot cake. I draw on little frosting carrots just like in the bakery. Very cute.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandfather's stuffed cabbage and stuffed peppers. What I wouldn't give to have him back to make me some more...
My cooking tragedies
The worst was when I tried to make homemade alfredo about 10 years ago. Added way too much flour or SOMETHING!! It tasted like school paste. It was so horendous that I cannot even eat afredo to this day.
