My mom started me in the kitchen when I was around 3 or 4, I can't remember, but I was young. We would make lemon custard tarts, and when I was 8, she let me plan my own meal. It was a great start and I've been cooking for my own family ever since. I'm pregnant with our third child and love being at home with my two year old and one year old!
My favorite things to cook
I love making home-made cookies with my two year old daughter. I adore making different kinds of curry and mexican food for my husband. But I have some Italian blood in me and so my favorite foods to eat consist of some sort of tomato base!
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Christmas we make a "happy birthday Jesus!" cake. It helps us remember the real reason for the season. I've just learned making tamale's with my husbands family and it's a lot of work but a lot of fun!
My cooking triumphs
Have you tried my bruschetta salad???
My cookies are always buttery and yummy!
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I made for my husband (we had just gotten back from our honeymoon) and I burned everything. My husband graciously ate it anyway (and didn't make any faces) and told me he loved me. It was a tragedy in the kitchen but a triumph in our marriage!
