Mom of 2 boys who play A LOT of baseball. We need plenty of quick and easy meal plans. Make ahead meals are a staple around the house. My oven is also great because it can be programmed to start when we're not here. Many cooks fear this for various reasons, but we couldn't function adequately without it!
My favorite things to cook
Meat loaf, lasagna, tuna casserole. Right now we are cuffed to many "One Pot" recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
MAKE AHEAD!! LOL Both my husband and myself work full time, with dh coaching baseball and taking a class this fall. On the fly cooking is the best way I can explain what we often do to keep from ending up paying triple (or more) in a restaurant 5-6 days per week!
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered "on hand" cooking. I have made some of my best dishes when forced to use what is in the house. Unfortunately I'm terrible about writing it down so I often am unable to reproduce the same dish twice! Makes it interesting though!
My cooking tragedies
**SEE TRIUMPHS** hahahahaha!
