I'm a happy sahm with a beautiful little girl. My husband takes meds for high blood pressure and cholesterol so we eat beef once a month. We've lost 50 lbs each in the last few years and work hard to keep it off.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, chicken and more chicken. I miss beef but it's a small sacrifice for my husband's good health. I do enjoy making desserts but can only indulge a little at holidays. I'm always on the hunt for a new recipe, especially slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's not really a tradition, it's a recipe. My mom found a Bisquick banana bread recipe in a magazine sometime in the mid/late 70s. I still have the original page! I make it all the time, I have shared this recipe with everyone and it's always a huge hit. I get requests to bring my banana bread to parties and gatherings. My friends call it 'Ma W.'s banana bread'... a nice remembrance to my dear mother.
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner at age 24. I did great, only the mashed potatoes were a disappointment.
My cooking tragedies
I still cringe at the memory of the pototo salad I brought to work for a pot luck and went waaayyy overboard with the onion. Eeeeekkk!
