I am married and mother of two. Work full time but still love the kitchen and love to cook for my family and friends. Just wish I had more time for it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new things and I love to cook with new ingredients/experiement. I dont have one favorite thing to cook as I go through phases. My husband has recently been diagnosed with Type II Diabetes so I have been working alot with Spelnda desserts and low-carb main dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up loving to cook and have been doing it since I was a kid. My mom is a good cook but does not take risks or does she experiement with new ingredients. I am just the opposite as I love to "play" in my kitchen. You just never know what I might create.
My cooking triumphs
I have a collection of what I call my "signature recipes" and these can carry me from a potluck get together to a full blown 5 course sit down meal in my home.
My cooking tragedies
Wow, too many to list but a Thanksgiving Apple Pie that went WAY wrong. I love homemade ice cream and use to make it a lot in the summer, since my husband has been diagnosed with diabetes, i have experiemented by trying to make low calorie, low sugar ice cream and so far NONE have worked. I have ended up with gross runny slushes on several occasions. I think I have finally realized there is no such thing as low calorie, low sugar ice cream. Oh well, I probably will keep trying. LOL
