I have a love/hate relationship with cooking...most of the time, I really love it-the planning, the shopping, the final result (the eating!) but with 3 small children, sometimes I am just too tired to even think about it!
My favorite things to cook
Everything...I love breakfast, dinner entrees, salads, and cookies especially.
My favorite family cooking traditions
What a challenge! My husband is a meat and potatoes kind of guy and I am a bit of a foodie but now with my own family and a tight shopping budget, I just try to take simple recipes and execute them really well. I simply don't have the budget for really fancy items-especially when feeding picky preschoolers!
My cooking triumphs
I host Thanksgiving every year for my family and it turns out awesome-everything from scratch! (ok, except the biscuits!) I cooked for 20 people this year and it was awesome! Christmas eve and several dinner parties for family friends were great successes too! and Valentine's Day dinner to me tasted like I was sitting in a 4 star restaurant!
My cooking tragedies
One Thanksgiving, about 14 years ago, I put too much milk in the mashed potatoes and still get teased about it every year....
