I have been married for 8 years. We have one son, 6 yrs old. I am a RN and I work part time at a hospital. I also own an Event Planning business. I am a typical American wife and mom...busy! I haven't been cooking alot, and recently we have decided to try to lead healthier lifestyles, so I want to learn to cook a larger variety of meals.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook spaghetti, tacos, baked chicken or pork, grilled steaks, roasts, soups and salads, chicken pot pie...I do not like to fry things. Partly because they are not healthy, but mostly because I hate grease in my kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas we all get together and cook all the traditional things. On New Year's we usually BBQ a hog outside with all the fixin's...slaw, sweet potatoes, bread, green beans, mac & cheese...In the summer we like to make strawberry preserves and put away fresh vegetables.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking has always been middle of the road. My biggest success is my beef roast. Yum yum!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make Japanese fried rice once. Yuck!
