I am a PROUD Army wife and mother, stationed in Germany. I love to try new recipes out on my family. They are the BEST guinea pigs, as they have no qualms about letting me know what they truly think!
My favorite things to cook
Anything in the slow cooker. I also love to try out Italian and Asian influenced dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have no "traditions" per se, but I really enjoy teaching my children how to prepare their favorite things. My heart melts when they say that they can't wait to teach their children how to make their favorite dishes when they grow up, just like Mom did!
My cooking triumphs
Every day that the family asks for "seconds please" is a triumph!!
My cooking tragedies
My first Thanksgiving turkey... I was living in Samoa with my husband and his family, and thought that I, as the only American there, should be the one to roast the turkey. WHAT A MISTAKE ~ It was so dry that everyone only ate the side dishes!!! I WAS MORTIFIED!
