I am a wife and mother of three children. One still at home. I cook because I have to, BUT I have recently become more interested and enthused since my daughter told me about Allrecipes.com. I have two extra people living in our home due to the economy so I have to cook more often now and needed to do better.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make things that will please the crowd, such as lasagna, pasta salad, mexican etc. I also enjoy baking as it makes all the men happy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Probably Red beans and Rice which came from a relatives restaurant. It's always a hit.
My cooking triumphs
The oyster stew I just made from ALlrecipes.com. I DONT cook seafood but everyone raved. Quite an accomplishment in a coastal town where everyone knows how it should taste.
My cooking tragedies
A recent stir fry that normally turns out pretty well. When they don't say much at the table, you know you've crashed and burned. LOL
