I'm a mom of four. I try to make homemade meals every night. We do occasionally buy premades but they are usually mixed in with something I cook myself. My cooking style is sort of like Sandra Lee's semi-homemade. I also have learned to make my own breads and I try to regularly make snacks for my children, muffins, cookies, granola bars...I prefer they eat homemade food rather than chips and candy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook the meals my mother always used to cook. Things like Green Pepper Steak, Potato Soup, Corned Beef and Cabbage. My mom made the most amazing dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to get in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and cook with my dad. He is the best at Thanksgiving dinners.
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered the Super Pretzel.
My Father in Law loves these pretzels and actually stopped going to the mall to buy them.
My cooking tragedies
Every time I cook is a new chance to experiment. Sometimes things work out great and other times they turn into goopy disgusting messes. Thank Goodness I have a great husband...he always tries what I make no matter what it looks or smells like =)
