I don't like to spend too much time cooking most of the time, but I do like to eat well. Most of my cooking is obligatory since my kids like to eat. They never like the same things as one another so I try to alternate. I worked as a baker from age 17 to 30 so everything I make, I cook really fast.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make easy recipes with not too much fuss. Sloppy Joes, Pork Chops, kid-friendly stuff most of the time. I take great pride in my secret barbecue sauce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make peanut brittle during the holidays. I am always in charge of making gravy at Thanksgiving.
My cooking triumphs
I am just happy to get some dinner on the table each night.
My cooking tragedies
I burn stuff all the time, even myself when cooking! One time my daughter and I made the most beautiful gingerbread house and then we went to the store for a minute and when we came back, the dog had knocked it down from the table, broken it, and picked off most of the candy. We always remember that tragedy during the holidays.
