I am a Coast Guard spouse. We are at our first duty station in California and love it! My daughter will be 5 soon and is in preschool here and blooming! I will be going back to school in January for Medical Office/Assistant and am very excited =)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking in the crockpot! Another favorite of mine is lasagne. I really love trying out new things - especially if they lead to me working with new and different spices and ingredients!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm southern so we don't have any that are healthy, that's for sure! My family is huge so we specialize in the big-feast get togethers. My favorite from home is the Low Country Shrimp Boil - with whole mushrooms and crab claws thrown in, yummo!
My cooking triumphs
Hopefully it will be Thanksgiving dinner 2010 - I'll let you know!
My cooking tragedies
The stuffed shells primavera that were sitting on the counter waiting on the oven when the cat jumped into them are tied with the two pumkin pies that spilled everywhere when I took them out to foil the crusts =(
