I'm a busy mom and business owner; I just finished 18 yrs of homeschooling, and have so much more time to cook! I take care of my 23yo daughter with special needs and have a photography business that I've been at for almost nine years. I look forward to more cooking and being able to get more active in church activities.
My favorite things to cook
I like hearty home-cooked meals, but am trying to be more and more conscious of choosing healthy foods, kicking simple carbs, adding more veggies, and cooking meats in better ways. I love carbs and a love chocolate! I don't struggle with weight, but my husband does, and I just want us all to eat in ways that are good for us.
My cooking triumphs
I recently had a graduation dinner for my daughter. Catering was SO expensive, so I opted to take a day and make a LOT of lasagna for 120 people. I saved about $7 a head over catering (for a comparable meal), and people were asking us who DID the catering!! That was nice...I was afraid of letting down a LARGE crowd.
My cooking tragedies
My worst tragedies have been using boxed, processed foods and being so busy and distracted that I made a stupid mistake! I guess when I actually have time to make a good meal I'm more alert and careful.
