I didn't used to like to cook and once I had 3 small children, meals became generic (picky eaters) and the same few things all the time. As my kids turned into teenagers, they wanted more food and more variety so I research recipes to try new things and I'm having a blast! And the picky eaters have discovered lots of things they actually like!
My favorite things to cook
I really like making things from scratch and I've had a chocolate cake and frosting recipe for years that I have always used for my kids' birthdays. All the character cakes taste much better when made from scratch!
My cooking tragedies
This has probably happened to everyone - not a total tragedy, but I was trying a complicated chicken recipe I found online. I spent a couple hours putting it together and it cooked all day in the slow cooker. It looked so pretty, but when we tasted it, we ALL thought it was horrible!!
