I'm a 34 year old wife and mother of 3. I love cooking, it's my outlet. My family says they can tell what mood i'm in by what i cook. I enjoy helping new cook learn new and easy recipes that can turn into their favorites.
My favorite things to cook
Anything grilled, lasagna and chicken and dumplings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Teaching my kids how to cook and bake from a very young age. Sharing our families favorites at community potlucks and bbq's. You have to try everything twice and then if you still dont like it you dont have to eat it.
My cooking triumphs
My children will eat almost anything. They love vegetables and salads, whole grains and fresh fruit. Having them cooking beside me has taught them how to make good eating chooses.I have helped some moms of very picky eaters learn how to make healthier meals that their kids will actually eat.
My cooking tragedies
The first meatloaf i ever made. I put it in a loaf pan but didnt know to put a pan under to catch the grease. I caught the oven on fire and my husband could only laugh at me. Luckily my neighbor heard me yelling and the smoke and brought her fire extinguisher and put out the fire. I was only 19 and had never cooked meat before because i grew up vegetarian.
