I have been in the Navy for a year and a half now and I am expecting my first child. Of course, I think every pregnant female loves to cook when pregnant. I would love to be able to go home and WOW my family. (I really don't know how to cook. I can't cook anything really from scratch but I am pretty good with direction.
My favorite things to cook
As of now I am good with anything in a box and I love salads. Any kind of salad, vegi, fruity, etc. I would like to be a pro at making mexican food though, I can't get enough of it, especially enchillada's.(If that's even how you spell it.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother loves to cook during Christmas, but now that we are all older everyone wants the turn to take the challenge. And we all have things we can cook better than the other, doesn't everybody.
My cooking triumphs
One Christmas, a long time ago. My little sister and I found my mothers Cookbook and picked out 9 different desserts. It took us three days to cook all of them, but it was really worth it. Every year one of us brings it up.
My cooking tragedies
I tend to mess up the simplest things. (Even Jello, once.) And I am extremely forgetfull, not to mention I never know what to set the oven for. I call my mom over everything including how to bake a potatoe.
I guess my worst story would be when I was about 13 years old. My family was living way out in the woods and my mother had started a garden. One day she asked my little sister, a friend and I to snap the beans(green beans)she and my aunt had picked. Not knowing that she only meant to snap the ends off, we spent an entire day taking apart the entire bean and getting every little pod out of each and every one of those beans. We actually ruined all of it. After hows of this and having extremely sore fingers my mother just laughed it off. My aunt was alittle mad.
