I am a stay at home mom with 5 kids, ages 12-3. I used to be an attorney but if I were to go back in time I think I would go to culinary school! Two of my daughters say they want to be chefs when they grow up - maybe I'll live vicariously through them! I love to cook and try new things for my family and friends. If a friend is sick, I'm at their door with soup!
My favorite things to cook
I'm a vegetarian, my family isn't. With 5 kids and busy schedules, I like quick dinner ideas, slow cooker options, etc. I love to entertain so like having some good go-to recipes. I love to make soups, vegetarian dinners, great appetizers, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids are starting to like to cook so my 12 and 10 year old enjoy making dinner with me or experimenting on their own. It's fun to watch them get excited in the kitchen!
My cooking triumphs
I make some great vegetarian soups and love to share with friends. I always make double what I need so I can share. I also make a mean Snicker Bar Cheesecake and love making fresh spring rolls.
My cooking tragedies
I tried macaroni and cheese in the crock pot. Not a good idea!
