I have always been a busy mom, with 4 kids and a husband. Always worked shift work, was thrilled when I finally got a weekend off,only to realize that everyone in the house had something to do. With 3 sons and a husband in construction they wanted hearty meals, if I cooked potatoes in was a 10 lb. bag and it was gone.
My favorite things to cook
Always liked to make cabbage rolls, turkey(in the oven)
My favorite family cooking traditions
we always had a multi-cultural meal each week, one time would be Italian, next would be Ukrainian, german, etc.
My cooking triumphs
My second son asked me to make perogies for his wedding(to a girl from England).I would come home from work every night and make a batch of perogies and freeze them. Finally,after 640 of them being made. Wedding comes,I put them in a warming tray and the English people looked at them very strangely and wouldn't try them. Needless to say, after that I have never made them again.
My cooking tragedies
I have too many to mention, this kid isnt an automatic cook, she has to work at it lol
