I'm a mom to four fantastic unschooling kids. We enjoy cooking together, going on walks, playing at the park, and all sorts of fun. I'm a big knitter and crafer, though I haven't been doing as much as I used to. I'll admit it, I've gotten kind of lazy with everything in life. Right now we're trying to learn to live below our means, as tough as that is, which means more home cooked meals, less going out, and more time as a family in general. What could be better than that?
My favorite things to cook
Currently my favorite thing to cook is definitely my shepherd's pie and my beef stew, which always turns out slightly different each time. I love colonial and Victorian cooking when I can try my hand at it, but I haven't had much opportunity. Most of all, I prefer to make everything from scratch when possible. Sure, it takes longer, but it's more fun and I get to know everything that goes into the making of it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's not a particular day or time, but I love cooking with my kids!
My cooking triumphs
Okay, maybe it's not my triumph, but my daughter is learning how to cook.
My cooking tragedies
There's a story in our old Girl Scout troop about "the killer brownie". While I didn't take part in making it, I share the shame... And then there's all of those "well, that didn't quite work over a fire like I expected it to..." camping moments...
