I'm married and primarily a stay-at-home mom to my 2 children, but also teach a biology lab part-time at a local college during the fall and spring semesters. I love my family and really like being able to cook them delicious meals frequently!
My favorite things to cook
I have really taken a liking to cooking in the past few years, and LOVE being able to take advantage of all the recipe reviews here!! My favorite things to make are simple meals that taste like they're a lot of work (but aren't)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays and sunday breakfasts... my mom always made a big deal out of thanksgiving and christmas dinners... and she makes some awesome stuffing. Sunday breakfasts were always a big deal too... we'd all go to church then have a late breakfast/brunch that left us stuffed and sitting around reading the paper for a while afterwards!
My cooking triumphs
Shrimp scampi III from this site (although I have to offer much of that credit to recipe submitter MLT)... my husband loves it!!
My cooking tragedies
It's not unusual for me to try to make a recipe easier than it really is... sometimes, it's great and super easy... however, I think the worst was a time I tried to do a mac and cheese in the crockpot... I really wanted it to be good... but it just wasn't!!
