I am a 31 year old mother of two with a wonderful husband and a full time job. I had my kids young (something I am very thankful for) and they are 11 and 14. I just started delving into the cooking world in past couple of years. Since discovering this website, I have been really loving it. Also, we have had to make some changes in how we handle our money and for the first ever I am learning this amazing concept called budgeting.
My favorite things to cook
Thai dishes are my favorite dishes to prepare. However that was before I started cooking! Now I love everything! I am still not the best at baking, but my dinners so far are getting rave reviews from my family.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas Eve we prepare a feast that is unique to the season. Last year we did Thai, the year before it was all food on sticks. Then the next day DH does the traditional turkey dinner.
My cooking triumphs
This past week (August 16-23) I have cooked dinner every night! That is huge for me because DH does all the cooking. I made scalloped potatoes with pork chops, amazing mashed potatoes, rices, chicken Parmesan, even made my own apple sauce for muffins that I wanted to make at 6am in the morn! And I have been tweaking recipes to make them my own.
My cooking tragedies
None yet! I only just started. But I know there will be and there is no avoiding it. It happens to even the most experienced. But I will post the garish details when they happen.
