I am a mother to three girls and the wife to my one loving husband. I currently work for InterCall, Inc., a web conferencing company. I enjoy sewing, crocheting, watching movies, canning and getting paranoid that I don't have enough food and goods saved up to last a year.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are easy meals that my kids like. Those are far and few between, but the reward of having them all enjoy it is a wonderful gift! I do enjoy baking a lot, probably because I get to eat it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at the annual Family White Elephant Christmas Party my aunt makes these wreaths made with cornflakes, marshmallows, green food coloring, and red hots. We call them the mean greens. Don't eat to many if you can resist.
My cooking triumphs
My greatest cooking triumph is learning how to cook without eggs. We have a severe egg allergy in the family so foods are limited to what recipe does not include eggs to begin with, or ones that I can substitute eggs with, what else, egg replacer.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy is trying to find ways to cook/bake dishes that usually require eggs...without eggs. The texture usually turns out completely wrong, usually flat and flimsy.
