Busy working mom that loves to cook when I have the time but hate to just put out a quick "have to" meal when there's no time.
My favorite things to cook
Soups or anything on the grill. I love trying new recipes and experimenting with little changes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
One sister does thanksgiving dinner every year some things change depending on how many of the 8 of us get together. The things that never change are me bringing the deviled eggs, hosting sister does her veggie caserole and one brother always brings fudge (mom's recipe).
My cooking triumphs
My family says I make the best potato salad, salsa and deviled eggs. I guess since I get the most cheers on those that would be my triumph. I personally love my tortilla soup.
My cooking tragedies
Rice. I struggle with a good steamed rice (even in a rice cooker) and can never get a fried rice right (always seems to be missing something.
