Mother of one (two if you count my husband). With several health issues, I try to cook healthy but with a two-yr old, I have to cook fast, too.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything. I love dishes where I get to use my knives a lot. My favorites are the dishes that are deceptively simple but amaze our guests.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father was raised in Southern California so Mexican food is a big thing at our house, especially around the holidays. My father-in-law is a master griller so dinners at their house always have amazing meat dishes.
My cooking triumphs
Within a month of getting married, a friend of my husband and I put together an eight-course meal for ten of our closest friends. Our plan was to use every one of our new wedding gifts. We nearly succeeded and had to clean all the dishes and cooking paraphernalia in the bathtub.
My cooking tragedies
Wow... I know I've had them. I just can't remember them!
