I'm a mom. I work. I'm tired often. But my husband and I cherish family meals, so I work hard to have dinner on the table nightly. I love quick & easy recipes that taste good, are family-friendly and on the healthier side, but also need some fancier fare, appetizers and main dishes, for when we entertain.
My favorite things to cook
We love Italian and your good ol' American meat-n-potatoes, but because of watching our wastelines, I'm always working toward making these things in the healthiest fashion possible.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love making my mom's turkey with dressing and baked beans because I learned from her and she learned from her mom and grandma learned from her's, etc. It's a great connection to my heritage.
My cooking triumphs
My husband would rather eat my dinner leftovers for lunch than eat out with his co-workers.
My cooking tragedies
We learn by our mistakes, right? I've definitely had my share of learning. :)
