I'm a single mom of two wonderful kids. They are both getting to be very picky eaters, but always love tp try when I bake something new. I enjoy trying new recipes on here and sharing them with my dad and the rest of my family.
My favorite things to cook
I get such satisfaction when I cook or bake for other people. My kids and their friends love the baked goods but friends and family. My dad brings his own tupperware to my house when I cook one of his favorites or something new. He will even volunteer to do the grocery shopping if I make him a special treat! :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas eve, my family has an "open house" at my sisters house. My dad buys a ton of chinese food and some of the guests bake something delicous. On Christmas day, the family comes to my house and I cook them a big meal and I usually incorporate a new recipe from this site.
My cooking triumphs
I made a seafood chowder based on a recipe that I found on this site and went a little crazy and really changed it up. Everyone loved it! My dad said it was the best seafood chowder he's ever eaten!!
My cooking tragedies
I gave my sister a delicious slow cooker ham recipe that she made on Thanksgiving for a bunch of people. I felt so bad when I realized that I bought the wrong cut of ham and let everyone know that it was my fault it wasn't as delicious as it could have been.
