I am a Navy wife & mother of 3. I began cooking when I was 8 years old. I enjoying learning new ways of cooking and love trying new foods.
My favorite things to cook
I don't think I have just one favorite thing to cook. I do enjoying trying new recipes. Our faves to try are new pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am currently teaching our oldest daughter how to cook, well the basics really since she is only 6 years old. But she has a knack for it. She LOVES to be in the kitchen helping me any way she can and learning new things.
My cooking triumphs
A couple of my triumphs have been BBQ Pulled Pork (I remember making it for the first time for a baby shower... Everyone Loved it!) and another was making Beef & Brocolli (it tasted just as good as if I just ordered it from our loacal chinese restaurant)
My cooking tragedies
I have had several... marinades that I have tried that ruined the meat, Sauces for pastas that never came out how I hoped it would.. and lasagna. FOr some reason I can never get it to taste as good as I would like. (but I haven't given up on it just yet)
