I'm a full time homemaker (domestic goddess), wife, and mother of three teens. I keep busy by volunteering at the kid's schools and various fundraisers throughout the year. My mom never really did much cooking, my most remarkable memories of her cooking is that she poured Ragu all over pork chops one night, chicken the next night for what seemed like forever. Her turkey gravy was gray and chunky with giblets. Not at all appetizing! Fortunately, my mother in law didn't mind teaching me some of her cooking skills, and through trial and error, I've become a somewhat decent cook.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that everyone in the family will eat and enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals such as turkey with most of the fixings, baking cookies with the kids, grilling ribs for friends.
My cooking triumphs
Soups, Ribs, cookies, grilled chicken, Pork loin, pot roast, oriental cuisine,
My cooking tragedies
Being a Tupperware freak, I thought it would be a good idea to combine two ingredients in the quick shake container for speed and ease. In full witness of my teenage daughter, I began to shake them together. About two shakes into it, we both realized it wasn't a good idea and the soda caused a massive explosion all over the kitchen. Great bonding experience while the three women of the home cleaned the mess and my dutiful husband continued the movie we were watching, occassionally chuckling at the thought of my brain fart.
