I am a 43 year old mother of 4. I have a 26 and 23 year old and then I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old. I've been the only cook in the family for well over 25 years and have actually worked professionally as a cook.I loved the job!
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna it's my dish to dazzle. I don't count calories and I don't make it for the weak of stomach but I can sure make it! Also I have several of my grandmothers recipes that I enjoy making.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sadly I have none as my family was not truly into cooking. It was a lot of microwave growing up.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to cook professionally was my biggest!!! It was the ultimate joy to feed hundreds of people on occassion and have them walk away full and happy.
My cooking tragedies
A pie I dropped after working on it all afternoon. Pumpkin from scratch including cooking the pumpkin to begin with. Then POOF on the floor. I cried over that one.
