I'm a 28 year old mom of an awesome 6 year old son and beautiful 4 year old daughter. I'm in school part-time pursuing an Environmental Science degree and love to spend time with my family, outdoors and cooking/baking.
My favorite things to cook
Anything Italian: spaghetti sauce, chicken parmigiana, homemade pasta, ravioli, lasanga, etc.
Family Favorites: turkey tacos, chicken quesadillas, chicken in cream sauce casserole, homemade chicken soup, homemade breads, specialty pancakes, custom omelettes, big holiday dinners, mashed potatoes, BBQ chicken, steaks
Desserts: apple and pumpkin pie, snickerdoodles, shortbread cookies, peanut butter cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Christmas I make a giant (16 quart) pot of my grandmother's spaghetti sauce along with my father's awesome chicken parmigiana, lasanga with homemade noodles, homemade pastas and (starting this year) homemade bread.
My cooking triumphs
Making a full Thanksgiving dinner for 15 people this year all by myself including stuffing from scratch and an apple and pumpkin pie with homemade crust.
