I've been with my husband since high school and I'm a SAHM to our four boys ages 6-13 and also do daycare for a friend of ours.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking basic meat and potato's. I was raised in a small farming village in IL so a lot of my cooking comes from what my Grandmother and Aunts taught me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Red Velvet cake at Christmas made from scratch using an old family recipe. Even the frosting is from scratch. I also always make scalloped corn, another (Swedish) family recipe at the holidays. In addition I make a fruit salad we have dubbed *Tacky Salad* that has become a huge family favorite.
My cooking triumphs
creating my own *Best Ever Chicken Sandwich* which I now get requests to make by my kids, hubby and all my friends I've ever made it from!
