My name is Crystal & I am a homeschool mom of 3 & married to a wonderful man. I also run MrsHappyHomemaker.com & am the cooking expert for Life Around Home along with being a field editor for Taste of Home magazine.
My favorite things to cook
Comfort food! You know - all the food thats bad for you!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner, and all the treats that go with it!
My cooking triumphs
My recipe for fried chicken - its a hit every time! Also, when I finally got the knack of making and assembling tamales - that was another major one!
My cooking tragedies
Trying some Peanut Butter Thai Chicken from this site. It was wretched, and I still have nightmares! I should have known better to have cooked it! Peanut butter goes on sandwiches and chocolate, not on chicken! Chicken is for frying in a cast iron!!
