I work full time so I don't always have the energy to cook in the evening and those are the days a slow cooker is my best friend. I love to cook for people and seeing them enjoy a meal or bringing baked stuff to work - I work with all women and they love to eat!
My favorite things to cook
My family loves pasta so I cook alot of chicken recipes with pasta - my daughter loves "country" food like black eyed peas and biscuits and chicken and dumplings so I do that for her - I love to cook on the grill, too - I'll cook anything except a recipe that calls for yeast - I don't do yeast - it never works for me! I love to bake when the kids are home...
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only tradition that we have is that I make Italian sausage subs on Christmas Eve. My husband is Polish/Italian and his mother made them every Christmas Eve for her family so we've carried that on, too.
