I have three children ages 25....... 17...... and 3 years. I also am a gramma to a beautiful 4 year old boy. I love to cook (especially baking) and I love taking care of my family. Luckily, my wonderful husband has afforded me the awesome job of stay at home mom (and gramma). I'm always looking for new ways to entertain the kids and new recipes to feed them. I recently lost 55 pounds with Weight Watchers and am on the lookout for low fat and fabulous recipes. Allrecipes members never let me down!! I only rate a recipe if I feel it is outstanding for myself and my family. If we don't care for it, I just delete it from my box. I don't want to deter anyone from trying a recipe just because we didn't like it. That is why you will mostly see 5 star recipes in my reviews.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, the boys and I have so much fun. Anything in the crockpot is great. I also love Mexican food and Pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making a big Sunday dinner. It's something that has been a tradition since I was a little girl. I can remember my mom being in the kitchen all day slow cooking her Italian specialties like chicken cacciatore or pasta with meatballs & sausage. Her fresh homemade tomato sauce can't be beat.
My cooking triumphs
I made a three tier cake for my sisters wedding. It was the middle of August and I was so worried it would be disastrous, but it turned out great.
