I'm a mother of 2, a 2 year old son and 13 year old daughter. Cooking has always been an important part of our family traditions. I love to experiment in the kitchen. I have a wonderful husband who teaches 7th and 8th grade special education. I'm a stay at home mom.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook pasta dishes and things that use fresh simple ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think my favorite traditions are actually the times my mom, sister and I have spent canning in the kitchen. It never seems like something I wanted to do until we were all there around the kitchen table snipping and snapping beans and running our mouths!
My cooking triumphs
I can cook a great turkey and my kielbasa stir fry is a favorite.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make a sauce with red wine and cream and it turned purple and was completely inedible.
