I LOVE to cook and bake and trying new things. I have been serious about cooking since I became a mom. I have 2 gorgeous boys and they are the loves of my life, along with my hubby! I feel food is what brings family close, sitting around the table, eating...that's where it's all at...you're sharing more than food, the best times and memories are always made around the kitchen!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything! I try to cook Portuguese style dishes and LOTS of Italian dishes since I am Portuguese and my husband is Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking tradition is of course, our Thanksgiving meal together, when I get all the boys involved in helping me out! :)
My cooking triumphs
I would like to consider all my meals a triumph, but will only consider a meal a triumph I hear: "Ummmmm, this is SO good mommy".
My cooking tragedies
I had a few tragedies, which I will not re-hash..LOL...generally I try really hard to follow a recipe, taste it along the way and add what it needs to our tastes and I try to keep a close eye on the stove! :) If something doesn't turn out quiet right I tweak it and make it better the next time.
