I'm a housewife and mother to two little boys under two! My goal is to have them grow up saying "my mom is the best cook in the world!" I also want to have a few specialties that "only I" can make right, and be able to make cookies without looking at a recipe. I love trying new things and am constantly experimenting on my husband...
My favorite things to cook
I love love love ethnic foods, Greek, Indian, Asian, you name it. I'm learning, slowly, how to bake with good results. I always like keeping the "secret ingredient" secret :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My moms famous sayings in the kitchen were "I'm not making any guarantees" and "You'll never have this again". Just use whats in the fridge! My grandmother is a pretty good cook, my favorite was always the raisin cookies at Christmas!
My cooking triumphs
Chicken with cider and bacon sauce, the ultimate dinner!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list... I have made chili that was so hot no one could eat it, Alfredo sauce made with sweetened condensed milk, and a cake that tasted like playdough!
