I am trying to expand my repertoire of recipes that EVERYONE in the family will eat! I grew up working in restaurants, but now I enjoy cooking for my favorite people of all in my own kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I think my very favorite thing to cook changes daily; it's whatever the kids help me with! Right now we make a batch of muffins from scratch every week, changing up the recipe. Our favorite thus far is our Harvest Muffins.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making and decorating Gingerbread Boys on Thanksgiving morning!
My cooking triumphs
I think my biggest triumph is kind of silly; it was learning to use the crock pot because I'd always been afraid to for some reason!
My cooking tragedies
The very first time I ever cooked for the man who was to be my husband I had just moved into a new apartment and tried to make a whole chicken. The inside was still frozen and the outside almost caught on fire. I learned later (after I called the landlord) that the stove had been broken and only one coil worked and had sparked. But it scared me away from whole chickens for good =)
