Here I am 42 years old... I am still a beginner cook as I have done all I could to avoid cooking during my entire adult life. I have 2 boys 15, and 2.5 yrs old. Newly married on 3/28/09 to a wonderful man (finally!!!) after raising my kids alone and being single for nearly 20 years!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Quick, Tasty, and easy! I especially like boneless chicken breast, chicken wings, hamburger, pork chops, tuna, salmon, Italian, Mexican, Oriental... not necessarally in order of preference...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mostly southern, although I am not very practiced, as I have done relatively very little cooking over the past years of my life.
My cooking triumphs
My First Pecan Pie - Cooked for Thanksgiving dinner during my first marriage. - age 22 - My then mother-in-law told me it was a blue ribbon winner, said she could not believe it was my first!
My cooking tragedies
There is something new every week... I hope to improve thru my failures! :)
