I am a wife and mommy first. After that I am a 4th grade writing teacher. I love to cook for my family and for friends. I enjoy finding a recipe that everyone in the family loves, and is so good they will ask for 2nds.
My favorite things to cook
I love using my slow cooker and trying untypical recipes things in it.
My family loves beef stroganoff, meat balls of any kind, pastas, Tex-Mex dishes, and traditional good old Southern cooking, like chicken and dumplings.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family always bakes sugar cookies at Christmas, makes Grandma's dressing at Thanksgiving, and cooks that special birthday dinner for each and every birthday.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking anything that my 3yr. old will eat with out turning his nose up at it is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
There has been a time or two where I wouldn't eat what I cooked. They were so bad I have blocked them from my memory.
