I'm an Army Wife currently living in Germany. I tend to cook more involved dishes when I'm not working (which is often since we move a lot) and quick and easy dishes when I'm working.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken! I'm an ex-vegetarian that now only eats chicken, turkey, and fish and my husband doesn't like fish, so we eat a LOT of chicken :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up my mom didn't try new things and served traditional meals...meatloaf, pot roast, burgers, spaghetti...stuff that 4 kids would all eat so I like to try new things now.
My cooking triumphs
When it's edible!! I'm becoming a better cook but when we were first married there were many nights that we'd have to order pizza because the meal was so bad! Now the food generally turns out well when I have a recipe to follow. I don't do well improvising.
My cooking tragedies
It took me forever to figure out how to get dumplings right when I made chicken and dumplings. Those were pizza nights :)
