I'm a Mom of one 3-year old Son, and a soon-to-arrive Daughter. I'm far from a homemaker, and have a very busy career in sales training. For years I've felt like I've just 'gotten by' with cooking. I'll follow recipes - some work for the family; some don't. I know what I like and what I don't but don't really know how to adjust the food I make with herbs and spices to make things taste better. I want to improve!
My favorite things to cook
Italian pastas, Southern comfort foods like chicken pot pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really don't have any cooking traditions, except for having BBQ meals with friends and family. I'd love to create a tradition of my own with my family - my dream is to move to Italy and live with their way of life, love, friends, familiy, and food.
My cooking triumphs
Finding one recipe book that seems to have good food, that is easy to make.
My cooking tragedies
Anything that involves cooking a meal from a new recipe book and the leftovers sit in the fridge until it needs to be thrown out. That is so disappointing!
