Hello! My name is Kelli and I am hooked to this site. What a great way to try new recipes and read about the ratings. Some recipes I won't try if they have alot of bad ratings. It saves me time! I love cooking for my family and love to entertain. We do all holidays, birthdays, and special occasions. It makes me so happy when someone eats something I make and loves it! Both of our families are great cooks.I have learned alot from them. Having a very busy life of a mother of three, during school and sport season I do alot of crock-pot recipes to make my life easier as well as having a nutritional meal.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make my Italian sauce and my meatballs, chicken beaumont (my moms famous recipe) her chicken pie too! I like to make a roast beef dinner with mashed potatoes, chicken pie, shrimp scampi, baked scollops, and my famous beef stew. These are just a few of my favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Wow- where would I begin? They say the Irish can't cook, but not true for my family! My Irish grandmother made the best sauce! Although I have tried-it just does not come out like hers! I love at the holidays having the usuals on the table- scollop wrapped in bacon, my moms veggie casserole, and my dads corn beef and cabbage at St Patties day!
My cooking triumphs
Well- my mom did all the cooking growing up and I never cooked at home. So when i got married, I learned fast! My first holiday dinner was a riot, I did not know what to do to a potato! Through having a growing family- I have learned alot all through trial and many errors!
My cooking tragedies
Oh boy- having potatoes soak in a pot overnight for a holiday and being brown the next day! I only did that once! Putting a chicken roast upside down-that was a chuckle. I have had more good than bad- we have to learn somehow!
