I've been married for 6 years. I'm from the Midwest and spent the last 5 years living on the East Coast. Now I'm happily back in the center of the country, living in TEXAS!! I've never been a picky eater, but I hate fast food. I like to find a recipe and make it our own. all recipes has helped make some great traditions in our house!!
My favorite things to cook
Since I work full time, I love to use the crockpot during the week when I can. I am also a big fan of trying different seafood recipes along with different ethnic recipes. But being from the midwest, my husband and I love casseroles!
My favorite family cooking traditions
1. Sunday Dinner is mandatory.
2. Summer is meant for grilling everything (including watermelon)
My cooking triumphs
I've made several holiday turkey's on my own with no help. I don't have any extended family to learn from so it's required a lot of research. But I can take a 12# turkey and make a fabulous dinner, leftovers, 4 turkey pot pies for the freezer and amazing turkey stock that lasts a good while. I waste very little in the pantry/fridge!!
My cooking tragedies
Me + Meatloaf = Disaster every time!!
