I love my husband, my son, and my Army life! I'm a stay-at-home mom, and very part-time massage therapist. The thing I can't live without is fresh basil, oregano, and rosemary from my herb garden!
My favorite things to cook
For convenience, I tend to lean toward one-dish meals... casseroles, skillet creations, baked pasta, and soups. With a small family, it means leftovers for lunch the next day. Why cook twice, when you can cook once?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since we live far from family, every time I go home to visit, I'm asked to make Stromboli. My husband's family likes me to make the Kraut Bierocks.
My cooking triumphs
I'm most proud of the fact that I can now make up my own recipes. I never would have known how to invent dinner without using Allrecipes first.
My cooking tragedies
I fear making Fried Chicken. I've never gotten it right! Burnt on the outside, pink on the inside! That's one dish my boys won't brag on me about!
