I am a proud stay at home mom that loves to cook for my family! My husband and 2 boys are big eaters. My husband is a meat and potatoes guy and the boys are nuggets and fries kinda guys, so when the chance comes along to cook for a party and make new things its pure happiness! The look on my guests faces is my true cooking trophy. Seasonal cooking is the best- fresh tomatoes, squash, apples, and everything that grows in the garden makes every dish even better. Ohio is bland in the winter so I count on my brother-in-laws canned tomatoes and sauces along with frozen homegrown veggies makes any soup bring back that taste of summer!!!
My favorite things to cook
Pita Pizza (my boys favorite) They love thin crust and one night they wanted pizza and we wanted steak. Pita with sauce and cheese 350 till cheese is just right!!! Yea its just that but to have them in the kitchen helping me makes me happy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The smell of Mexican food with the traditional meals. When you walk in the door of a birthday party or a holiday gathering turkey and tamales yummy!!
My cooking triumphs
Everything I make thats new!!!!
My cooking tragedies
