So, this week I prepared many meals on my 2 days off to freeze for the family. On Saturday I made Amatriciana (I found it on Evins blog) and stuck it in the freezer. It was easy as pie to make and tasted ohhh sooo good on Monday evening. My DH only had to boil the noodles and thaw the… MORE

So, as most of you know I started back in the work force last week after 7 years as a stay at home mom. My job was SUPPOSED to be part time at a local grocery store. My schedule was neatly laid out for me which allowed me to make meals to put in the freezer ahead of time no problem right.Well,… MORE

About Me
I am a recently divorced mother of 2 boys ages 7 and 10. Cooking has taken on a new meaning as I have gone from a stay at home mom, to a working mom, to a single mom, and now I'm again an attached stay at home mom. I always love to cook new things I think thats the spice of life and exposing kidlets to things they wouldnt otherwise try. I must admit after being held away from the kitchen because of work I am again embracing being able to make whatever I want rather than what time allows. I AM A LUCKY GAL!!!!!!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking mexican food especially green chili wich is a very popular local dish in our area. I also enjoy cooking my favorite foods from the south kinda eases homesickness.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmmmm. For most of my marriage we have always prepared a Thanksgiving dinner with all the stops. Turkey, corn bread stuffing, gravy, mashed potatos and gravy, sweet potatos, green bean casserole, and candied sweet potatos ;) Cliche I know but reminds me of long ago family Thanksgiving. BTW, Thanksgiving dinner has come along way over the last 10 years ;)
My cooking triumphs
Well one time I made a meatball sandwich from a recipe in a Quick Cooking magazine. It was let's just say far from being something you want to put in your mouth. I decided I wanted to come up with my own recipe which I submitted to Quick Cooking, ended up getting published in the magazine as well as the yearly cookbook. I was so jazzed I created something that turned out such a sucess. I was like 20, lol! I keep the letter that told me my recipe was being published with my kids baby book, lmao!
My cooking tragedies
With only 1000 words we will stick with this tragedy. The first time I cooked Thanksgiving dinner for my family (I was 19) I diligently cooked my turkey most of the day. When it came time to carve it (most of my dad's side of the family joined us for dinner) I realized I had cooked it the entire day with the neck, liver, giblets and a GRAVY packet still in the cavity of the turkey =0, lol!! I had no idea that crammed all of that stuff INSIDE the turkey!!
