I'm a married mom of 3. My oldest is a boy who loves video games and theatre along with fast food. My middle child is my Princess and a very picky eater. The youngest was born on 3/12/13 so we have a while before he picks his favorite foods. My husband has several major health issues so it is a constant battle to find foods that everyone can eat and enjoy while still meeting his needs. I've recently decided that it's time to lose weight and become healthier. I'm finally joining AR after lurking around for years in hopes of finding recipes that will suit the whole family.
My favorite things to cook
I love making favorites that I know my family will devour. I cook by the season; lots of slow cooked comfort foods in the fall and winter while the spring and summer brings lots of salads and fresh veggies. I do get a lot of requests for my lasagna so that is made just about every birthday and on Father's Day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My newest tradition is including my daughter in the kitchen as much as possible. I also make a huge Thanksgiving meal every year and invite all our friends who don't have family near to join us. Then on each person's birthday, I cook the meal of their choice.
My cooking triumphs
My first Thanksgiving dinner 4 years ago. I made enough food to feed half the city (there were 4 of us) but we feasted like kings for a week. They turkey was perfect!
My cooking tragedies
I can not bake desserts to save my life :(
