Mother of 2. grew up bouncing between Illinois and California. My family is a mixture of cultures and I like to try and incorporate the traditions of all of the cultures I have been exposed to into my family life so that my children can be well rounded and not have a care of who you are or where you are from. You will be welcome in our home any time!
My favorite things to cook
I try to cook healthy but the comfort foods from my many cultures are my fall back.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No matter who it was in my family we always cooked from scratch. Boxes were unheard of. I try and stay away from the boxes and work from scratch and the heart.
My cooking triumphs
jams and jellies
My cooking tragedies
a lot of things in my slow cooker seem to fail and the "foreman grill"
Stews seem too soupy but I think I have learned a trick.
