i am a busy single mother of four children, 2 boys 2 girls. my dad started teaching me how to cook around the age of 9. most things come naturally. i have learned how to make something from nothing growing up in a poor family. i want to own my own restraunt someday, right now i don't have the time or energy.
My favorite things to cook
anything that i can actually get the kids to eat and its usually the simple things like fruit salad, pasta. i really enjoy making large family meals especially for holidays. i feel all fuzzy inside watching people enjoying my food over old stories and humor.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my dads beef barbeque we dont make it often but its good and it takes all day in the crock pot. i make rock candy every christmas, and my family loves my quick cheescake delight i make during the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
pulling off thanksgiving dinner without preparing the week during,and starting right after a day at work. i wouldn't suggest doing this i almost cut my thumb off from being so tired.
My cooking tragedies
when i am experimenting and things don't turn out quite the way i expect, i just try and try again.
