I'm a stay at home mom to a 6 year old and a 5 year old and one more on the way...I was previously an elementary school teacher. My kids love to help me cook so we try to make something every day together.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking things that are family friendly and that can be prepped ahead of time. Dinner time can be hectic at our house, so meals that are done in the slow cooker or prepped in the morning are usually our favorites. We also love to have friends over to play, so kid friendly snacks such as muffins, granola bars, and cookies are also some of our favorites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a great cook, but other than that no one else in the family likes to cook. We don't have a ton of traditions, but we love Italian food, and lots of comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
I am just starting to host more family dinners and holidays. I have yet to cook a turkey dinner, so I think that is on my list of things I want to try soon.
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, meatballs have always given me problems. I am on a quest for the perfect, easy meatball recipe.
