I'm a thirty-something single mother of three kids. My Mother didn't cook much and my Father didn't know how to do anything but fry greasy foods. So I always wanted to be a good cook. I have three kids with very different tastes that provide a real challenge, when trying to cook.
I'm a school nurse and very busy so by the end of the day I'm looking for something quick and nutritious. On the weekend and in the summers, I really strike out and try new, more difficult recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I really like to try new recipes. Some are good, some are so-so and others are awful! I make some really awesome beef enchiladas, pepper steak with rice, meat loaf, pot roast and egg rolls.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We do alot of baking at Christmas. I love the way it makes the house smell and it is a really great and personal gift.
My cooking triumphs
I'd say making something using phyllo dough. It wasn't easy!
My cooking tragedies
In the early days I always over cooked or under cooked. I either had food so bland no one liked it or so salty or spicey no one could stand it.
