I'm a stay at home mom of 3 boys and a girl. My two oldest boys enjoy helping out in the kitchen at mealtime and occasionally argue about who's turn it is to help out.Above under hobbies I only had a choice for knitting but I really prefer crocheting. Everything from hats and booties to afghans and doilies.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti with garlic bread; roasts; a chicken alfredo recipe that is soooo addicting that the dish has been dubbed "Crack Chicken". I really enjoy holiday cooking too. Next Thanksgiving.... a stuffed turkey cooked on the smoker! MMMMMMMMMMMMM!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have a recipe for spicy spaghetti that my family absolutely LOVES! I make it in a huge batch and freeze it for later use.
My cooking triumphs
Well since we recently moved to Colorado I hope to someday add "Learning to cook at high altitudes" to this list. (lol) Its an entirely different experience for me!
My cooking tragedies
At 5 I had gotten up in the middle of the night and wanted to cook breakfast for my family. I put water, flour, various stuff in bottles, sugar and three food colorings in. I turned on the stove and stirred the contents. not long after my parents came in the kitchen and started chatting with me about what I was making, and telling how sweet the gesture was and writing down the recipe. Needless to say we didn't have my "gravy" in the morning.
