I am a 38 yr old happily married mom of 5 who never learned how to cook, so I am learning via trial by fire:) Luckily for me, my hubby is a good cook and very patient:)
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook big meals that taste good:) Mostly meat and potatoes, or something with rice or noodles, but still involving meat and potatoes:)
I also like to make desserts of any kind.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're still working on them! These still involve a bigger list of things to learn how to do, rather than things I have successfully accomplished, but we're working on it! I can make a mean turkey or ham holiday meal, though! And I try to include the kids in the kitchen festivities as much as possible:) Their involvement is the most important tradition of all to me!
My cooking triumphs
Many of my triumphs were inspired by allrecipes! From these pages I have made many excellent meals and treats, from home made rolls and breads to meats of all kinds, and cookies or whatnot for desserts. Truly, though I may feel I am still learning, my family thinks I'm actually a good cook! who'd a knew??!!
My cooking tragedies
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, I couldn't cook diddly squat, burning hockey puck hamburgers and ruining my husband's ability to enjoy anything with rosemary in it:P Really, if it wasn't french toast or spaghetti, it was anybody's guess as to how edible it would be:P But thanks to the wonderful recipes and thoughtful reviews found here, I can't remember the last meal time disaster. hurray!!!
