I'm a mom to one beautiful son with another on the way. I'm married to a wonderful man and Marine. I'm also a college student. I live for my family's health, well being and happiness.
My favorite things to cook
I cook a lot of quick recipes, but I do like to take my time dicing, mincing and chopping ingredients. My family and I like spicy, sweet, savory foods, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having everyone participate in a small way, from licking the spoons to mixing ingredients. Family time in the kitchen is a great way for children to learn and create bonds.
My cooking triumphs
Today was the first time I've ever used a crock pot or dry beans! It turned out perfectly!
My cooking tragedies
I was creating a casserole when I substituted instant potatoes for real mashed potatoes, it was a disaster. The casserole was soupy.
