With two kids, a husband and a full-time job, I do quick and easy during the week and get a little fancier on the weekend. I find cooking relaxing and love to entertain by giving dinner parties!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking just about anything. One-pot meals are a favorite in our house and the slow cooker gets a lot of use. I like to barbeque all year round - there's nothing like grilling meat and vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas meals are a favorite family tradition for me. I cook the same dishes my mother did. I won't fool with tradition.
My cooking triumphs
My latest favorite is Thai cooking. I made, from scratch, of course, a coconut chicken curry that I haven't seen bested in a restaurant.
My cooking tragedies
I don't do pies. My mother-in-law is a world class pastry maker. Her peach pies have won awards! I, on the other hand, succeeded in making a pie crust that would have been better used as a frisbee!
