I am a stay at home mom. My daughter really enjoys being with me in the kitchen. I explain to her all of my cooking techniques and I hope that she will love to cook as much as I do someday.
My favorite things to cook
Old-Fashioned home cooking. Stick to your ribs stews, soups and other hot food in the winter, and marinated all day bbq on the grill with fresh local veggies all summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always cook American Thanksgiving at my mums house. All family holiday meals MUST include a platter of olives and pickles. My step-mum makes Bang-Bang Shrimp on the night of our arrival when we come visit, and I, myself, make tons of apple pie durring apple picking season to give as gifts whenever we are invited to a friends for dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Grandma Oples Apple Pie on this site is one of the greatest things I've ever made.
