mother to three little boys and for my dad and 21 yr old brother, men never do grow up, do they? anyways, i try to cook a variety of food, not always that health conscience, but we keep it interesting.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, the kids love it that we keep brownies, muffins, cookies, etc... in the house, what they don't know is that all those "sweets" are loaded with carrots, spinach, and other veggies that i've sent through the puree cycle!
My favorite family cooking traditions
every family get together, i am required to bring the green bean casserole(they haven't figured out that the recipe is on the can, so don't tell them) and a banana pudding pie , and i always bring something else that i know they have never had. my kids, and parents are adventurous eaters, but the rest of the fam has to be force fed exotic fare.
My cooking triumphs
my dad and i won third place in a chilli cook off at Ft stewart, ga, when i was 16. very cool.
My cooking tragedies
due to our oven sucking, i burnt my own birthday cake when i turned 15.
