I'm a small town girl that loves to experiment with food. Hardest part about it is my husband is a meat and potatoes kinda guy, so, I enjoy cooking for guests and co workers who like to try different things. I have two boys, nine and three...Matthew and Brayden, who like being in the kitchen and cooking with me. I want to raise them to be able to cook more than KD and toast and I'm sure their gf's/wives will enjoy having a man that can cook and clean as well as provide :)
My favorite things to cook
When cooking for my family I like taking old favorites and giving them new twists. Sometimes it's hard to cook for all of us at the same time being that my family are all big meat eaters and I'm the only vegetarian in the family. I just get such a feeling of satisfaction when I know I have made something they will love.
My motto with cooking is "You never know if you'kll like it unless you try it" MJy kids aren't so fond of that motto, but, it has worked.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas dinner, Rememberance days (Turkey Dinners), The "Special Breakfast" I make for my children on their birthdays.
Making desserts with the kids
My cooking triumphs
Experimenting, I have made a lot of things that were really tasty...I have to get better at writing down the ingredients I use though. I'd like to maybe write a cook book for working mom's one of these days
My cooking tragedies
Oh...lol...I could write a lot here. I really am not good at making Pie..it's the crust. I will keep trying until I master it an Make a Blueberry Pie that will knock my husband's socks off. Burning things happens occasionally as well...sometimes, when i get home from work and am cooking...cleaning and playing with the kids all at the same time...well...ya know what that can lead to ;)
