I find cooking incredibly relaxing and love to entertain guests. I'm a Midwesterner at heart and that is often reflected in my meals and my portion sizes.
I like to think I live in the real Food Network Cooking Challenge . That is opening the fridge to find a few random ingredients to turn into a meal while leaping over toy cars on your kitchen floor, "reading" a storybook you now have memorized to a child while jotting down the details from your last work call so you don't forget them. If you can put a healthy and delicious meal on the table thru that then you are a Food Champion!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoys putting together new meals for my family and guests. I'm easily bored with a meal so I'm constantly changing recipes and putting new twists on things.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with large family meals and always feeding a crowd. I love a good hearty meal that allows me to mingle with our guests while still providing a delicious meal.
My cooking triumphs
If my husband likes it, it's a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
I never like to be "beaten" by a recipe and if something doesn't turn out right, I'll play with the recipe continuously to get it to work. My husband tells horror stories about my meatloaf project.
