Love to hike, dance salsa, and cook, in that order:) I am a young 45 year old with 3 grown sons. i have a great husband, he would have to be to put up with me:)
My favorite things to cook
meals for my sons and husband and daughter in laws. I would probably eat grilled cheese sandwiches and soup if I didn't have motivation to cook for my family. They tell me that they think i'm a great cook, hopefully they aren't just humoring me :0
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dutch favorites that my mom and mother in law have taught me. they provide my sons with a sense of their heritage, and they really embrace it.
My cooking triumphs
developing a recipe or two that my family beg for on special occasions. I think their favorite is Dutch croquettes, i took a few recipes and made it into one that worked for us.
My cooking tragedies
mmmm....anytime something doesn't turn out i feel like ! i can't seem to make a decent mac and cheese from scratch, always turns out gritty :(
