I'm 46, married with 2 kids and I really like to cook for my family. I'm teaching both my kids how to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I make a mean chicken fahita, spagetti and meatloaf. My family is not into leaving much left overs so when what I cook is gone, I know they liked it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We really don't have a tradition yet, my kids are just learning to cook and bake, we do get together and prepare some of our dinners to save time.
My cooking triumphs
Just this past October I was baking my niece in law's birthday cake. There was going to be about 12 people there so I had to make a cake big enough for everyone. So, I made 2, 9x13 in. cakes and put then together and decoraed it. It was so much fun making a cake from cratch and having every morsal of it eaten.
My cooking tragedies
I made or should I say I tried to make my husband's favorite meal. It was our first night together in our new home and I wanted to make him Meatloaf with mashed potato's and green beans.
Well, the potato's were runny,lumpy and cold,I drained all of the water out of the green beans and started a small fire in our microwave and the meatloaf was so over cooked it looked like a flat hockey puck. I cried like a baby.
18 years later, my husband can't wait to eat my meatloaf and my mashed potato's are not lumpy or runny.
