Mother of 4, stepmother of 4, grandmother of a wonderful little guy... can't wait until he is old enough to make cookies with. I work two part-time jobs as Office Manager and Payroll Administrator, so long days and like recipes that are quick or that can sit in the slow cooker all day. Try to keep meals healthy and avoid a lot of fried foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love mexican dishes, pasta. Stir-fries are great when you are in a hurry. I love trying out new recipes and adapting them to what I have at home. I love to bake but it is few and far between these days. Fresh fruit dishes are great.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas and Thanksgiving Dinner.
Birthday parties and homemade birthday cakes when kids were younger.
My cooking triumphs
Three summers cooking at a summer camp with over 100 campers, bringing recipes from home, seeing the kids love it, and especially our last evening special dinner.
My cooking tragedies
Tendency to overcook my roasts and still working at perfecting that...
