I am wife, mommmy to two adorable kiddos ( a boy age 9 & a girl age 14), I also keep my niece who is four full time and nephew who is 11 months. I will be substitute teaching this fall. I enjoy cooking & eating, being with my family, entertaining, watching tv & movies - love court shows & reality shows, seeing new places, relaxing, etc.
My favorite things to cook
desserts, appetizers, & casseroles.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have many of those. When I was growing up my dad yelled at me while I cooked gravy - now I can make a fantastic gravy that makes even my mother in law envious...does that count?? Lol
My cooking triumphs
I think that just learning on my own is a triumph in itself. I have mastered that art of cooking things that are simple and making them taste like I spent all day on them!! I love to search and find new quick dishes!
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to make stew...not a good experience for any of us. Not even the dog would eat it...'nuff said. :)
