I have been married to my husband for over 23 years. We have two boys, 14 & 12, and a daughter who is 6. I am a busy mom who works a business from my home. I also enjoy traveling abroad and trying new foods. I always like to try and replicate things that I eat in my travels. My recent trip was to the Peruvian Amazon and Machu Picchu a few months ago. I am always looking for new recipes that are quick and kid friendly.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook a variety of things, but my favorite is baking. I use my bread machine daily making bread for sandwiches and dinner rolls. Can't remember the last time I purchased a loaf of bread at the store.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love preparing a home cooked holiday meal. I get my kids and my husband to help so we can all take pride in what we sit down to.
My cooking triumphs
I take pride in calling myself a natural cook, meaning I purchase and serve very few prepared or processed foods. I make my own bread daily, never buy frozen processed chicken or pizzas, and even make my own salad dressings. I really make an effort to cook and serve foods that start out fresh.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of a specific meal, but I can tell you that when I first got married, I had plenty of them that I wouldn't want to remember.
