I am a stay at home wife and mom who loves to cook for my husband of 15 1/2 years and my 3 kids.
My favorite things to cook
Roast. I am the queen of roast meats.
Home fries - my husband adores them,
Fish Frys after a successful fishing trip.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Christmas cookies with my mom,
New Year's day Pork roast and sauerkraut,
Homemade Pierogies with my grandma
My cooking triumphs
I volunteered to make Thanksgiving dinner the first year I was married, and it was a hit! Everyone was really impressed that a 19 year old newlywed could actually cook - and so well! It was really an ego booster.
My cooking tragedies
The following year for Thanksgiving, I was asked to bring the rolls, so I thought - no problem, I'll make my mom's famous Clover Leaf rolls! Ha. They literally went over like a lead balloon. For all the other cooking I had done, I had never attempted to make my own bread and hadn't a clue how long to knead it and let it rise. My pitiful rolls were nasty, yeasty, hard as a rock little devils. We went without rolls.
