My name is Stephanie, I have an almost 4 year old (pickiest eater in the entire world). I'm always looking for recipes to try out...now I have to stick with the basics to try to get my daughter to eat more.
My favorite things to cook
I tend to cook a lot of chicken dishes (stir fries, pastas, etc.) I get into baking mode and do cookies and sweet breads. I like to try new things and then the second time around really modify a recipe to make it my own.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our Thanksgiving spread is amazing! We have such a wide variety of dishes and it's really special. Not only do we do the traditional roast turkey, but we have chicken pot pie, fried rice, curry, and all kinds of other goodies.
My cooking triumphs
I've got my homemade chicken pot pie down and that's probably my greatest success story yet.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made my own savory pie crust I accidentally used nasty old crisco sticks and it ended up tasting almost like chemicals. It was completely inedible because the flavor permeated the entire pot pie and I was so bummed!
