Mom of 2 girls and 2 boys. Wife to a "meat and potatoes" type of guy. I work part-time. I am always looking for healthy meal ideas that my young children will enjoy.
My favorite things to cook
I am pretty traditional in what I like to make. I enjoy incorporating fresh fruits into my dishes. I really like to bake and decorate my kids birthday cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Over the years, our holiday meals have become a little pot-luck. Everyone brings a "signature" dish and may bring a "newbie" dish too. You can count on your favorites but also get to look for a new fav too.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Tenderloin - too expensive to mess up, so I was a little nervous on my first attempt. But, it turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
A beautiful salad out of the pages of Southern Living- very heavy in the cilantro. Yuck- this was a day that will live in infamy with my hubbie. Let's just say, cilantro is not welcome in my kitchen again.
