I'm a SAHM of 2 wonderful boys. I also have 3 step-sons. As you can imagine, it is hard to find recipes that all the boys like. I have had much success with the Allrecipes website because the recipes are easy to follow and use ingredients that are usually on hand.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook most any type of food. I am not a big fan of baking....it requires a different kind of patience and expertise.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to make HUGE Thanksgiving Day meals. Turkey, Ham, dressing,stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, macaroni, pies etc.... Also, I love to get my kids involved in the kitchen. I love the conversations that just happen over a new recipe....it seems to be a lot easier to talk while you are focusing on a new recipe.
My cooking triumphs
I'm not a very good baker so when I make a great dessert I always feel triumphant. I've done several speciality B-day cakes for my kids that turned out very well, such as a Big Bird cake and a lost world/dinosaur cake.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there's just too many to count!!!! But that's what happens when you are willing to try anything on your unsuspecting dinner guests! LOL
