I'm a homeschooling mom of two. I also attend college online, pursuing a degree in History. I am an Ombudsman and love spending time with my husband watching movies or just talking.
My favorite things to cook
I like trying new recipes and new combinations of foods. I'm best known for my enchiladas, cheesepies, and lasagna.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always had huge feasts around holidays. My dad made the pies that were to die for and my mom cooked the rest of the meals.
My cooking triumphs
Enchiladas and lasagna. My best cooking triumph, though was when I had 11 single sailors from my husband's work over for Thanksgiving and I made a huge meal of turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, yams, corn, green bean cassarole, dumplings, biscuits, and a few other things. I also made apple, pecan, and fresh pumpkin pie and a couple of cheese pies.
My cooking tragedies
A few recipes that I've tried turned out terribly and ended up throwing them away and ordering pizza. I thought it was a tragedy, but my kids usually didn't! They got pizza!
