I am a work at home mom of one son with Asperger's Syndrome. I have a husband and two cats. Because of my husband's health, we were forced to re-think the way we ate. We've chucked boxes and cans in favor of from scratch. Sometimes we cheat, but ultimately most of what we eat is unprocessed food.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have a favorite... Anything that tastes good?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking recipes that have been in our family for years- like my husband's gradmother's turkey dressing or my grandmother's spaghetti and meatballs. Or foods from my mom's native country, Denmark, like pickled red cabbage. When I cook, we share stories about the family and the recipe. And my son always tastes to help make sure its seasoned correctly!
My cooking triumphs
Being able to take comfort food and making it into food you don't regret eating, even giving it nutritional value.
My cooking tragedies
Crunchy rice. Under cooked pork roast whose accompanying veggies soaked up the non-stick coating of the roasting pan. We ordered pizza instead.
