I'm a mother of two boys (ages 7 & 5), and a little girl (11 months old), happily married and a stay at home mom / student.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy entertaining, so I enjoy preparing appetizers, cocktails, large family meals and side dishes. I love baking, especially bread. When the boys were babies I loved making all of their baby foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lasagna, chicken cordon bleu, enchiladas, spaghetti and pot roast are all things I learned to cook growing up. I love baking rolls, wheat bread and sourdough bread.
My cooking triumphs
On a recent camping trip I made mashed sweet potatoes with sour cream and chives and the whole group went crazy for them! I also learned that homemade dinner rolls are not as difficult as I thought, same with homemade pizza dough.
My cooking tragedies
Everything when I first began! My husband and I moved in together when I was 18 and we lived off Hamburger Helper for the first few years because I ruined everything I touched in the kitchen!
