I always plan a weekly menu and get most of the groceries in one
trip. I like quick and easy during the week and spend more time on
the weekends. I like make ahead recipes for entertaining so I
won't be in the kitchen too much while guests are here.
My favorite things to cook
Love my crockpots, panini maker, food processor, blender and mixer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On holidays I like to make 1 or 2 things that my Mom and Grandma used to make (they were great cooks) plus try a few new things.
