I am an Army wife, I have one beautiful boy! I love cooking, especially when I get to show off at a gathering of friends, new and old.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything and everything! I am always scouring the internet and cookbooks for new recipes! In the summer I love to use the grill and in the winter I love the crockpot!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big saturday morning breakfasts! My grandmother still makes a big breakfast and it's usually just her and grandpa, but it's my favorite meal at her house!
My cooking triumphs
I cooked my first Thanksgiving dinner at 17! I was in charge of everything to feed my family of 6, plus 2 other guests! It really was the start of my love for cooking!
My cooking tragedies
The first thing I ever made was spaghetti when I was 13. I didn't have a recipe, just tid bits of memory from watching my mother or granmother make it. I didn't cook the noodles anywhere near done, forgot to drain the grease from the hamburger. It was just bad all around, even the dog wouldn't eat it! Since then I have been able to perfect Bolognese!
