I am a mother of two. I am currently working on my masters and not working. That has given me time to learn more about cooking and I am really enjoying all the cooking I have been able to do for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Breakfast. I make a real breakfast every morning for my kids, pancakes, waffles, cinnamon buns, eggs, or oatmeal usually. They never go to school on cold cereal.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes bread every Sunday morning. Our family only eats homemade bread. She grinds the wheat and everything!
My cooking triumphs
A few years ago I made Christmas dinner for 16 people. I used Bon Apitite's Christmas dinner and made everything on their menu, it took 3 days. The Candied Pear Tart was the best. =)
My cooking tragedies
It's usually Mac and Cheese actually. I put it on for the kids for lunch and most often I forget I had put the noodles in and the water evaporates leaving me with a burnt noodle mess. I usually have to throw away the pot.
