I am a wife and mother. Those are the best words to describe me! I love to cook when I have the time, which means I use my crockpot a lot when I am at work! I love to travel and read. I also love to go boating with my husband and our friends. I love the outdoors and love to tend to my garden!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Italian dishes as well as Mexican. I also love to try new things on a regular basis. We use our grill all year long (we can do that here in the south!) I love to change it up and add new dishes to our regular meal options.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up there were a few specific things I looked forward to when it came to food. Easter dinner has to be my favorite holiday meal b/c we always had Ham, Potatoe Salad, Deviled eggs, Baked Beans and such. It was like the pre-summer meal and it always made me realize that school was almost out and my favorite season, Summer, was just around the corner. I have continued this tradition with my own family!
My cooking triumphs
Most recently many dishes that I have taken to get togethers have been praised! I am so proud when people are asking time after time for my recipes! How exciting!
My cooking tragedies
I am a terrible baker! I always burn cookies! Guess I need to practice more! And grilled cheese is impossible for me!
