About this Cook
Mother had 6 children, each night the 5 oldest took a turn making dinner for the family. We all learned how to cook home style for a party of 8. No one had a cookbook mom just told us over the phone what to do. My biggest challenge once I left home was how to cook for one or two people. I was use to cooking for eight and also being a member of the clean plate club. Needless to say I gain a lot of weight the first two years away from home. I couldn't get a grip on home cooking for one or two people nor did I exhaust any extra time or energy into trying; basically I stopped homemade cooking and moved toward dinners out of a box. I have recently become focused on avoiding processed food and cooking healthy foods that my family enjoys.
My favorite things to cook
I love to find healthy recipes for vegetable side dishes. I am experimenting with vegetables in the rice steamer and creating healthy sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since all of my siblings (4 sisters & 1 brother)know who to cook we really support each other on a well made dish. During the holiday's everyone is trying to put their best foot foward and come up with something special.
My cooking triumphs
If anyone of us asks for a recipe one of them asks for the recipe
