I am a stay at home mother of a 3 year old and a 2 year old, but I love cooking different things for them to try!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian (pastas with really fresh ingredients especially), Southern Creole/ Cajun, cookies, cakes. I love trying recipes from different cultures that I normally would never get to eat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
HOLIDAYS! This year was my first Christmas with the whole family here in our new home. I spent the entire holiday in the kitchen, but it was worth it! We continued our old traditions and started some new ones.
My cooking triumphs
I recently made 'Borscht II' off this site for my husband who was born and raised in the Ukraine. He said it was excellent and reminded him of home. He also ate it for every meal for several days.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to recount.
