I'm a mom of 4 young men, ranging in age of 15-21 at the current time. They keep me busy cooking and my pocket book empty! I have an amazing husband who supports my cooking abilbity! :-)
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, and other desserts in general. I love to create recipes, although I haven't made very many. I love to cook simple things like Mexican Goulash that my whole family loves, it a one pot wonder, only 4 ingredients, and I'm mom of the year--for a day--when I make it, even now that my boys have grown up! So, if my family likes it, I love to cook it! There's nothing better than to cook something and have people mesmerized by it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
A meal at the table--cooking tradition or not.....it's my favorite FAMILY tradition!

My cooking tragedies
When I threw a rotten egg into a batter that was almost completely mixed---and had to start all over again. I now crack my eggs one at a time into a little dish and put them in the recipe so that I am sure there are no egg shells OR rotten eggs in my batter!!! :-)
