I am a married mother of 3. I cook a lot, and most enjoy it when I have the time. My kids are very involved in sports and dance, so at times it is challenging to get a good meal on the table. I LOVE to decorate my home and yard. I am a registered nurse in a local large hospital and my husband is a contractor. It is great to have someone handy around the house.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pies. I love to grill in the summer, shrimp being my latest "thing" that I am mastering.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I will often have my kids pick out a meal that they have to help prepare. They go through cookbooks or my recipe box, I buy the ingredients and we go from there. We are very into seafood, and usually for each family members birthday meal the b-day person picks crablegs that we prepare.
My cooking triumphs
Banana cream pie...finally have a great recipe.
Lasagne...made to my husbands specifications...not too much ricotta, heavy on the cottage cheese.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list. I do remember the very first time I ever cooked. It was tacos. I got all the lettuce, tomatos, cheese and sour cream ready. I browned the meat and didn't know that I was supposed to drain off the grease. The tacos were literally dripping with grease. It was unedible.
