Love to cook! I cook/bake using staples and not mixes in our home. I like to know what is going into my stomach (as well as my childrens' stomaches).
My favorite things to cook
100% Whole Wheat cookin!! And almost anything else!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cinnamon Rolls on my mother's birthday! This started only last year after my mother (an excellent cook) passed away. She made better-than-Cinnabon Cinnamon rolls ever since I can remember. So, on her birthday each year, no matter where we are in the country, all of her kids bake cinnamon rolls.
My cooking triumphs
My kids eating Lentils and loving them!!! Ham & Potato Soup (throw some lentils in) and Lentils and Rice. Awesome, flavorful dishes that my family LOVES!!!!
My cooking tragedies
Hamburger casserole. Yuck!! Tried to invent a casserole that was like a hamburger in a 9x13.... very yuck!!! I was able to turn the rest of it (about 2/3 of the pan) into Shephard's Pie the next night. So I guess not a complete flop!
