About this Cook
I am a busy, full-time working mom in a blended family of six. My mom was a single mom of two, and was not much of a cook, and I always longed for a large family with sit down dinners like my friends had. I fell into cooking when I married my husband four years a go, and quickly learned that I really enjoyed cooking. I cook for my family six out of seven nights, and I am always trying a new recipes once or twice a week.
My favorite things to cook
I am vegetarian, my family is not, so I am always having to substitute vegetarian items where meat is supposed to be. Sometimes it works out, sometimes not. I love making Italian and Mexican food the best. Gotta love pasta and cheese!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made Christmas cookies. This was a very big part of my childhood, and I have carried that tradition on with my children. My family loves every holiday, and I always cook something special that is related to the holiday, even on Halloween.
My cooking triumphs
My first homemade Apple Pie on Thanksgiving. It took a lot of peeling and a lot of apples, but turned out great right down to the crust!
My cooking tragedies
When I was thirteen I burned Instant Tapioca pudding...enough said.

Mom's Best Macaroni Salad
I used 1/4 c sugar instead of 1/2 and I really liked the way ut turned out. I also did not use green pepper.
