I'm a stay-at-home mom with a three year old daughter. I began to enjoy cooking once I became a mom. When my husband and I were first married I did not like cooking; we went out to eat almost everynight. Now, dining out isn't much fun with an active child in tow. This website has helped me embrace cooking as a hobby by providing so many different ideas. Once my husband is home from work I slip into the kitchen to enjoy a relaxing time to myself.
My favorite things to cook
Lately a lot of brownies and sugar cookies have been baked in my kitchen because my daughter likes to eat and help make them. I love baking these little treats with her; she has so much fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to make big pots of chili on cold nights, grill anything (chicken, shrimp, or steak) at our lakehouse during the summer, and appetizers for football games. Also, on saturday or sunday I make a big breakfast (grits, bacon, eggs & toast).
