I love to eat. I love to cook. I am a new/first time mom to a beautiful (now 10 months old) girl! Just recently, I have found the time to get back into the kitchen and have some fun...as opposed to just cranking out a meal to satisfy hunger.....boooooring!! Now, more than ever, I feel the need to work on my culinary skills....so my daughter will think 'Mommy makes the best yummies EVER!'...
Haha, i can dream :-)
My favorite things to cook
Ribs. And cakes. Oh yes, and fruit salsas. Oh, oh and............
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, growing up, my mom wasn't a very good cook. She was a young single mom, so i got whatever was fast, easy, and somewhat nutritious. Her mother, my Granny, erred on the bland & very nutritious side of cooking, which isn't very exciting for anyone. Fortunately, both have improved their skill sets over time, but that doesn't leave me with any family traditions : -(
So that just means it is up to me to start some! Yeah!! I'm ready, lets get this party started ;-)
*I must add that my Granny has made banana pudding for my mom at least once a year for as long as I can remember. And it sure is goooood. I do suppose that is a bit of tradition :-)
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
Heres ONE. I once dropped an entire ham on the kitchen floor as I was attempting to pull it out of the oven...
