I'm a 30 yr old mom of an awesome 20 month old daughter, she's inspiring me to cook and eat better for our whole family. lately I'm trying to make things for myself instead of buying, homebrewing beer, making my own pasta sauce, and now I'm onto bread!
My favorite things to cook
Shepard's Pie, meatloaf, meatballs, pulled pork, pies, chili, chicken marsala, lots more!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Memere (french grandmother) puts angel hair pasta as a layer in her Pot de chinios (yellow dish in french) sp? that's what we call shepard's pie...you wouldn't think it would make much of a difference but whenever I make it for people they love it!
My cooking triumphs
figuring out how to make a good pie crust finally!!!
My cooking tragedies
when I started out cooking, I tried making a roast in the crock pot and I kept "checking on it" and lifting the lid...duh!!!! It took forever to cook! lesson learned! haha
