I'm a mother of four, and my husband and I are both full-time military. I'm always looking for healthy, quick food ideas to get dinner on the table. On the weekends I enjoy cooking and spending time with my kids, both in the kitchen and out!
My favorite things to cook
I am always looking at healthy ideas to share with my friends and family and am always up to trying new things. I love to cook with fresh produce when it's available, and whole grains. I also enjoy using fresh fruit in desserts (Come on, who doesn't like dessert?!?!)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most holidays have been centered around food, but in an attempt to stop associating holidays with food and being in the kitchen all day, I am trying to find good holiday recipes that are quick and easy--so the holidays can be spent with family instead of slaving away in the kitchen...I have also grown up around country cooking, and am trying to lighten up some of my grandmother's recipes--any good substitutions???
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list!
