I am a SAHM/ WAHM mom. I have 4 kids that keep me running and they aren't even in Jr. High yet! I love to cook and spend hours on this website looking for the next perfect recipe to try out! It helps me keep my sanity! I started cooking when I was quite young. My mom hated cooking, although she's not a bad cook. So when I volunteered to start cooking, she was all over that. And she let me experiment and that was great for me!
My favorite things to cook
I go in waves. Right now I'm in a Mexican food kick. But since the holidays are coming up, I will be back in a candy and gift that you can eat kick too. I cook alot w/ beef and chicken breasts. My ultimate favorite thing to cook is soup. I love when the weather cools down and I can curl up w/ a bowl of soup!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make caramels every Christmas. I was having a problem with the kids not getting their homework done and we would be up til 10, 11 at night! So I started a new thing that if they get their homework done before I have dinner done, whether it is at 5 or 8, I will make them dessert! I have had to make dessert every night since I started that! Well, worth the extra time it takes me. And every night, the kids all take turns being the dinner helper. I want them to love cooking as much as I do.
My cooking triumphs
Any time my kids gobble down what I made, I know it was a success!
My cooking tragedies
I think I bomb a meal at least 2 or 3 times a month. My latest tragedy was corndog casserole. I don't even think a dog would have eaten that! Gross!
