I'm 31-years-old, married for 12 years to the best man ever. We have two little girls; ages nine and six. I run a small daycare in our home, which keeps me pretty busy, and a little crazy!
I have a lap band. So, I don't eat very much and I'm limited on what I can eat, but I absolutely love to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Meatloaf, honey-mustard chicken, lasagna, soups, stir-frys, burritos, anything on the grill.. the list can go on and on..
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve my granny makes oatmeal pie.. delicious.
On Christmas Day, my sister and her family and the four of us go to my parents for dinner. I think it's my favorite meal of the year. We have steak, shrimp cocktail, crab legs and/or lobster, baked potatoes, green bean casserole, cheddar biscuits, and usually a cheesecake that noone has room for until at least the next day! It's fantastic!
My cooking triumphs
Soup. Every time I make a pot of soup and it turns out great I feel like I should win a medal!! lol
My cooking tragedies
Any time I try to bake. It's never pretty.
