I am a busy professional, wife, and mom to 3 young kids. I enjoy cooking and trying new things. I usually try to keep things a bit more healthy for my family. I go for quick and easy recipies without a lot of fuss and love using my slow cooker.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, casseroles, anything in a slow cooker, baked goods. My grandma's apple pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my kids. It teaches them about cooking and team work, cooperation,and how to follow directions. And it is great "together" time for all of us!
My cooking triumphs
When I was first dating my husband, we were going to his family's for Thanksgiving. I volunteered to make an apple pie. I was very nervous to cook anything for his family seeing as it was my first holiday with them. I used my grandmother's recipe and it got rave reviews! They have thought of me as a great cook since then.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a little girl, I was baking cookies for my 4-H project and tested them out on my siblings. The cookies were so hard no one could bite into them. Then my brother threw one outside on the porch to see if he could break it and it dented the porch! Haven't had a disaster quite that bad since!
