I am a single mom of two great kids. My son is 6 and my daughter is 4. My cooking tends to be 75% quick and easy, 25% more complicated, fancy meals. Im not a fantastic baker so I like posting pics when something turns out the way it was supposed to.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite recipe is my hot spinach dip which I make with a lot of fresh herbs and melted cheese. I love italian food and it is my favorite thing to make. I am interested in some day learning how to make chinese food so I can stop ordering take-out.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite tradition is my Mom's holiday potatoes that we make on christmas. The secret is cream of potato soup. I have posted the recipe if you'd like to check it out.
My cooking triumphs
I recently (finally) learned how to make a meatloaf that doesn't fall apart. I was pretty excited about that.
My cooking tragedies
I recently discovered that, while, a lot of things taste fantastic melted... cheese, chocolate, etc... pot holders, however, do not.
