I've been married to my best friend for over 12 years now, and we have 5 beautiful children - 11, 9, 7, 3, and 1 year.
My favorite things to cook
I like things that are simple, I'm not into the froo-froo recipes - just simple and delicious.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't know that we have any family cooking traditions, but I do love making my mom's recipes and remembering family times growing up and enjoying that same food together.
My husband makes amazing omelets and we usually have those Christmas morning.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were engaged we got our families together for a weekend to get to know each other. Sat. morning we decided to make breakfast for everyone (the 1st time I would be cooking for in-laws), but we were at their boat house so very limited on supplies. There was a waffle mix in the cupboard that only required water, and we had a waffle iron, so we thought that would be a good idea. We started turning out the waffles, and everyone took their plates and went outside to eat. My dad was the last one to eat and after taking one bite asked (in the kindest way possible), "What's wrong with these? They taste awful." My husband/fiance and I tried them for the first time, and they were truly terrible! We went to talk to everyone outside about it and found out that most of them had just discreetly thrown them away, while my brother-in-law had drowned his in syrup and choked them down. That was over 13 years ago and they still talk about it!
