I'm a wife, mother and grandmother, still working as a Radiology Tech/Medical Tech. I enjoy providing my family with tasty, homemade meals made in as little time as possible during the week and treating them to a bit more Gourmet meals on weekends. I am very involved with my local Community Theater group and also my church.
My favorite things to cook
My family really loves Italian food. I also like to make healthy stir frys and enjoy making up new ways to use up any leftovers. I think my favorite meal of the days is breakfast so I really enjoy breakfast dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cold weather - Beer Pot Roast and Chicken Livers in Wine, Hot weather - Chicken Sausage Shish Kabobs, Gift Giving - Beer Cheese
My cooking triumphs
Our first Thanksgiving, I invited my husbands Mother, Father and Brother for dinner. I came home with an 8 pound turkey and my husband laughed at my "parakeet". No way was that going to feed his family of turkey lovers. I stuffed that little bird (plus a casserole dish full) of my my mothers(recipe) sausage stuffing and we still had leftover turkey. No stuffing but we did have turkey.
My cooking tragedies
YORKSHIRE PUDDING. My first attempt never popped. It tasted OK but it never popped
