I am a mother of 4 teenage daughters. I love to cook and bake and grill.
One of my daughters was recently diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes so we have to know the carb count of everything we make, that has made us think a lot more about what we eat and the affects on our bodies.
My favorite things to cook
Favorite things to cook varies, we try not to eat the same thing all of the time because the girls get burned out and things that they use to like the end up detesting because we have it all the time. So, I can't really say that I have a favorite thing to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Favorite family cooking traditions are around holidays, my Mom always prepared the same meals for me on my birthday and holidays.
My cooking triumphs
I never really thought of anything as a triumph, I really enjoy baking from scratch, I'm not sure why anyone uses mixes.
My cooking tragedies
Recently, against my better judgement, I made smores cupcakes (or tried to), the recipe called for making the batter and then adding 1 cup boiling water (which I questioned and then stupidly followed) - which ruined the batter and made a mess of the cupcakes, I was so disappointed - needless to say I didn't find myself in the kitchen any more than I had to be that day. Enough was enough! LOL
