I'm a mom of 4 kids (2 teenage boys and 2 toddler girls)...all picky eaters with the exception of my foster daughter (4 yrs old)...she will eat anything! I love to cook. My husband is my "guinea pig" a lot of times. However, he doesn't complain:).
My favorite things to cook
My favorite is Mexican quisine followed closely with Asian. Of course, good ol' Southern food from my neck of the woods. I will experiment with any great recipe from any part of the world. I try to make great recipes healthier for me and my family by making small modifications in ingredients (such as, instead of a stick of butter, half olive oil and half butter). You cannot tell the difference!
My cooking triumphs
I make a chicken enchilada recipe that is to die for! My lasagna is the best recipe I've found (and I've tried many). My homemade chili is also a popular request with my family and friends.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at making biscuits. I used all purpose flour, without baking powder or salt. My mother used self rising, of course. I was 19 "all purpose" made sense to me when I was first on my own and buying the flour. They turned out like rocks and I am still teased to this day. (Hey, I was only 19!)
