I am a wife and mother of three young children. I am always searching for a family friendly recipe that will be quick to throw together, easy on my wallet, and loved by all. Not too much to ask right?
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian foods, my grandfather was from Sicily and my dream is to visit Italy someday. For now though, I have to settle for cooking the foods. And drinking the wines, of course!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't have any, I know this is terrible, but my kids are young and I hate (I know, I'm cringing as I type it) to have them in the kitchen while I'm cooking. I do aspire to get over this and allow them to help me someday, I know they would love it, I on the otherhand, am not feeling the love.
My cooking triumphs
Anytime my BFF comes over and loudly proclaims, "OMG, Sara, this is AMAZING!!!" How can you not just love that?
My cooking tragedies
UGG...once my husband caught a catfish and I proclaimed "I can cook an amazing catfish, I'm sure...this will be delicious!!!" So I cleaned it up, soaked it in milk, and prepared a woderful recipe from allrecipes.com. We invited people over and waited as the house filled with a wonderful smell. Then we all took a bite, spit it back out and I said, "Who wants pizza?". It was nothing but fat, and so disgusting!!! Not to mention the humiliation.
