I am a SAHM to three awesome kids (two who are still at home) who love just about everything I cook or bake! I like to keep busy so when my plate is not loaded I usually like to spend that free time baking something usually fattening (because ALL the best tasting recipes are loaded with calories! lol)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake but when it comes to meals soups and chili's are at the top of my list. I like casseroles as well b/c they are soooo easy to make and are a quick fix for dinner - especially if you plan ahead and make a bunch and toss them in the freezer!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom-Mom's Chicken Pot Pie with homemade PA Dutch noodles is one of my family favorites. Our family does do a traditional fondue night on Christmas where we always make a new untried fondue.
My cooking triumphs
Well, I haven't burnt the house down yet so I think that's a triumph although, I *have* had to toss a vacuum out the door while on fire!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmmm, really the only thing I have ever made that my family turned their nose up at and refused to eat was Tuna Curry. We are just not curry people so that went into the garbage. Other than a few over baked things I haven't (thus far) had any tragedies (but there's still time!!)
