I've almost been married 11 years, and I married the unhealthiest man in America. I proceeded to have 3 of the unhealthiest boys. My life is a neverending battle to add veggies and remove grease from the table. I'm a stay-at-home mom. Unappreciated, overworked, and loving it! My boys 7, 5, and 2 are a joy . . . among other things! LOL! Life is great! (today)
My favorite things to cook
I love comfort food! Slow cookers are amazing! Of course, I love chocolate desserts of any kind. Roasts, soups, casseroles - anything like that's great. We eat veggies, but they're often swimming in bacon grease. Oops!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! Sweet potato souffle, giblet gravy, the smell of bread baking, and most of all the sound of 4 generations laughing, arguing, and snoring. Christmas is good, too, but more hectic. I like things slow.
My cooking triumphs
The day I successfully made a soft biscuit! Once I decorated a beautiful wedding cake, but it was too much work just to watch it get eaten. I also like making elaborate designs with chocolate!
My cooking tragedies
The first meal I tried to cook for my husband was roast beef. I bought cut up stew meat and put it in the slow cooker on high all night! I didn't add any liquid at all, either. We got up the next morning and our apartment smelled great! To my dismay, there were only a few beef "rocks" rolling around the bottom of my slow cooker. How disappointing! My husband was afraid he would starve the rest of our lives! I've improved since then, and I'm proud to report he brags about my cooking, now.
