Essentially I cook for two families. My own and the transitional homeless facility where I work as a monitor. I am always looking for new and inventive dishes to cook for both families and this site has been invaluable to me.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast dishes, anything with chicken, healthy meals that make my family want to be healthy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having the kids in the kitchen helping. It creates family time that we all enjoy and teaches my children the importance of cooking at home.
My cooking triumphs
In the past year I have completely changed the way I cook for my family. I used to make quick and easy meals and didn't look into the ingredients. Now I make sure everything I feed them is beneficial to their health and I feel good about what I am serving them.
My cooking tragedies
Loaf bread. I am awful at it. If I make them as a roll, muffin or bisquit, they are a hit. But every time I try to make it in a loaf, it ends up dense and I am unsatisfied with the results.
