I am wife, mother of 2 teenage boys (and that means cooking plenty!), and a RN. I am passionate about being creative in everyday life. I am entranced with cross stitching and finding ways to be more self sufficient.
My favorite things to cook
How can you have a favorite when there are so many delightful things to cook?! I really enjoy simple, flavorful recipes that have no or minimal processed foods in them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
That has to be Thanksgiving dinner. We always debate over it even though we know it will always be the same.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a turkey that is so moist and still perfectly browned that it makes my husband ask every time "Are you sure it's done". "Yes dear, you ask this every time I cook it".
My cooking tragedies
Thinking I had the greatest idea for squash (which all of us hate) then when it was cooked discovering that we still hated it.
Buying fish that I was assured by was delicious and it turned out to be hideous and felt like rubber when it was cooked.
