I'm a mom of two kids under the age of 3 (soon to be 3 under 4!) and I work full-time, so even though I love to cook, I don't have much time. I'm always on the lookout for good, wholesome recipes that don't take long to prepare. When I do have time, I love making involved recipes that take all day but are completely worth it!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and cooking any sort of comfort food, really. I also like to experiment with new and different flavors, changing up old recipes and making them my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to make cut-out sugar cookies with buttercream icing every Valentine's Day, and I continue that tradition with my own family. I also enjoy my dad's grilling, but I defer to his expertise and stick to bringing dessert.
My cooking triumphs
When I visit my parents, I like to try out new recipes on them. They have liked a lot of my creations, such as chicken pot pies and Italian stuffed chicken.
My cooking tragedies
My brother and I used to make these barely edible mini-cakes in the microwave when we were growing up. What can I say? As much as I like to experiment, I'm bound to have tragedies from time to time. :)
