35 year old SAHM
My favorite things to cook
Family meals with basic ingredients, that make my five year old son happy, but still would serve to the in-laws. :P
My favorite family cooking traditions
When we married, I bought a beautiful leather-bound Holiday cookbook to do our first Christmas Turkey. Every year now, whether Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, we record the results of that years tweaking of the recipes. Its a great little reminder of great ideas and disasters of the past.
My cooking triumphs
Just the everyday stuff - when my son cleans his plate and asks for more, that's enough for me.
My cooking tragedies
I love to bake banana bread, but got carried away one year and quadrupled my recipe (thinking I only doubled it). I essentially placed a double recipe in each baking loaf pan, which of course spilled all over the oven, caught on fire, and generally made our house smell awful for weeks. What a mess!
