I'm 27 and have 3 kids and a wonderful husband. When we first got married I couldn't cook at all, could barely boil water but after he was out of town for 3 weeks early on all that changed! I got so sick of fast food that I decided to learn to cook or else. Turns out I really really enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything. I love baking, trying new recipes and new flavor combinations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My kids were getting pickier and pickier and I got tired of the sound of "Eww! What's this?" so we started what we call country night. Every other Saturday we have a 3 course meal from a different country. We've had Greece, India, Italy, France, UK and tons of others. It's definitely helped them be a little more adventurous. We also have movie night on Sunday where we have a meal and a dessert but most importantly the kids get to help! We rotate turns so it's just one at a time. They all enjoy it and really look forward to their turn.
My cooking triumphs
Being able to put a balanced meal on the table every night, especially with as little cooking knowledge as I started with.
My cooking tragedies
When I was little in one of my very few cooking tries I got teaspoon and tablespoon mixed up. 1 tablespoon of salt in a chocolate poundcake is not an improvement. Since then I'm very careful about my measurements!
