I'm a Special Ed teacher who dabbles in the culinary world.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make desserts, stir-frys and breads of all kinds.
I grew up eating a lot of home 'country' cooking. Things like Cream Chicken, Perogies, Johnny-Cake, Beef Stew and Shepherds Pie. I'm not a real fancy cook, preferring to stick to my basic, homestyle roots.
I also love to use my BBQ!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Breakfast has always been my favorite meal, but it's also a meal that I don't get to indulge in much during the week due to the rush out the door to beat the traffic. So when weekends come, I love to go all out!
My cooking triumphs
I guess all my triumphs are small ever day ones. Pulling off a successful BBQ. Making a batch of cookies that delight my husband. Taking a loaf of delicious smelling bread out of the oven. Trying a new recipe and enjoying the results.
My cooking tragedies
Ruined one of my new pots by boiling it dry (oops!) That will teach me to not cook and try to catch up on work at the same time!
