Marrie 15 years. Two kids - boy 14 and girl 12. Both are athletes and along with my husband, love to eat! I go through phases with cooking where I am really into it and make menus, shopping lists and try new things. Then things get so busy and I get behind and stop cooking so much - alot of breakfast suppers and soup and sandwich nights. I would like to be better at keeping organized in the kitchen but know I probably never will! My kids like something and then they don't and getting them to eat fruits and veggies these days is a chore! Hanging in there and doing the best I can.
My favorite things to cook
I love crockpot recipes! Busy family with sports almost every night and ofcourse, homework. This way I get a good home cooked meal on the table even if it is late. Also love quick saute or one pot meals. Used to love to bake but no one in the family needs the extra calories so I have pretty much given that up!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Standing Rib Roast on Christmas,
My cooking tragedies
Once I tried to make lamb but had a few too many margaritas with my husband! It just wouldn't finish cooking and I think we finally cut around the edges to get the cooked parts. Also, tried to make homemade beef hash once and it was an utter disaster. This was pre-kids and my husband likes to refer to it as the Hell Hash Disaster of 1996!
