I'm an Army brat who grew up and became an Army wife. I have 2 boys; ages 6 and 1 year. I've just really gotten into cooking in the past year and am constantly trying to find things my picky 1 year old will eat. I started off pretty rocky but have slowly gotten pretty dang good in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love making my friend Shanna's Chicken Marengo. It's pretty easy to make and absolutely delicious. It's become almost a weekly dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost every Christmas morning my mom would make French toast caserole for us when we'd open presents.
My cooking triumphs
I managed to make an amazing orange glazed porkchop completely from scratch. Tonight I baked a perfect loaf of apple bread on my very first attempt.
My cooking tragedies
Well I won't go into details but at one point I was so inept that I burned pre-cooked bacon. Oh yeah. It wasn't pretty.
