My husband Paul and I have 2 little boys, Lucas and Landon, and a sweet dog, Mya.
My favorite things to cook
My boys keep me busy so I like to find recipes that are quick and easy to prepare but not short on flavor!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Any time I get to cook with family is special to me.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
I made homemade spaghetti sauce for my mom's birthday dinner - my first time entertaining a group. I thought if I let it cook in the crock pot all day it would be really tasty. But when I got home from work, I discovered that the sauce had burned onto the sides of the crock pot and my guests were arriving in 15 minutes. I tried to salvage the sauce by adding some sugar to try to hide the bitterness but it tasted terrible. I was going to order some pizza but my very supportive family insisted on trying it and pretended that it tasted great and ate it anyway.
