I'm married with one daughter (born 04/04/09) and two cats. I enjoy cooking and trying new things. One of my fondest childhood memories is being in the kitchen with my mom and her teaching me how to cook. Those recipes are still family favorites to this day, along with some new recipes I've created on my own. I'm looking forward to spending the same time teaching my own daughter how to cook.
My favorite things to cook
I love experimenting and trying new recipes and seeing what recipes I can create. Some have been great and some not so much. I love cooking Italian food and have been enjoying Mexican dishes lately as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Like many others, my favorite family cooking traditions would be helping my Mom with Thanksgiving dinner while watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and doing all the Christmas baking. I hope to start some new traditions with my daughter as she grows older.
My cooking triumphs
My creamy mushroom chicken. And pretty much anything that puts a smile on my family's face.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, this is easy. That horrid Asian chicken I cooked in the crockpot and the fancy beanie weanies (Of course the name of the recipe isn't fancy beanie weanies but that's exactly what the dish turned out to be).
