I'm a newbie but I enjoy trying new recipes for my young family. I try to make healthy kid friendly meals and try to involve my little helpers in the kitchen with me whenever I can.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts!! I love making desserts :) I also love to make easy, fast, & simple meals. I love to experiment & make convenient "finger foods" for my toddlers. They are simple yet nutritious!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Unfortunately I didn't learn how to cook until a few years ago but I do remember my mom making traditional filipino dishes. I wish I could cook the way she does! I miss homemade filipino food! Slowly but surely I'm making progress everyday & I'm on my way to making my own traditions with my boys :)
My cooking triumphs
Up until I got married & had kids 5 years ago, I couldn't cook anything except ramen noodles, mac & cheese, & hamburger helpers! My hubby did all the cooking. Now, I can cook meals for my whole family from scratch! My hubby even told me I'm a better cook than he is! Yay!
My cooking tragedies
I didnt know how to cook any type of chicken on the bone or even a whole bird. Its usually just boneless, skinless, chicken breasts. I wanted to surprise my husband so I bought a whole chicken and roasted it in the oven. I thought it looked DELICIOUS! Then my husband told me that I cooked the chicken upside down! Oh the horror! I 'thought' it looked exactly like the pic in the cook book!? Obviously I was wrong! LOL
