I recently had a baby girl and am now staying home with her. I am looking forward to having some time to do more experimenting and learning with my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I do a lot of comfort food. For potlucks, I am only allowed to bring a few things. By the time the list gets to me, my name is already listed under some catagories depending on the type of potluck.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our cooking traditions are done mostly around the holidays. We have to have our Christmas Breakfast Casserole on Christmas morning or it doesn't seem like Christmas. We also do a lot of recipe sharing amoung the women of my family.
My cooking triumphs
I had a birthday party for my daughter and made these really cute chicken bites using puff pastry and a recipe for hot chicken salad that I already have. They tasted great and looked really pretty too!
My cooking tragedies
For some reason, I have a really hard time making anything in the crockpot. A roast in the crockpot is usually dry, but bring it to the table from the oven and it is really good and juicy.
