I am Stacy and my son is Huxley. That's how I came up with HUXTACY (Hux + Stacy). Nightly family dinners were very important for my family growing up. I wanted to continue the habit with my son. This site has been SO HELPFUL! It has made what could have felt like a chore sometimes much more enjoyable for me.
My favorite things to cook
It seems that the longer it takes to simmer....the more I enjoy the end reward. That is one of the few times that Montana winters can come in useful.
Soups and chili are a great meal. Otherwise I would love to eat mexican food everyday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always got them on special occasions. Not until I was an adult did I realize that was not what they were serving "uptown". But I still love them.
My cooking triumphs
Many a Meals!
My cooking tragedies
If it's sweet and it has to look pretty....buy it!
