Working mom of two. Love to cook, love to try new recipes, love to plan menus. Would love to do everything from scratch, but right now time is crunched. Hit-and-miss cook.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican dishes, breakfast and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting my elementary-aged kids involved in the kitchen so they both have basic knowledge and can cook for themselves someday. Traditions include Christmas cookies, Saturday-morning pancakes, and my son likes to crack eggs for me whenever I'm cooking/baking!
My cooking triumphs
Baking is where I've been most successful - fancy cakes, cookies, cupcakes.
My cooking tragedies
I'm constantly overcooking beef (steaks, roasts, etc.).
