im 25 y/o with 2 children. My daughter is 6 and she is a very picky eater! My son is 2mo so he really has no choice!!! I used to just make microwave dinners or hamburger helper type stuff, the only thing i would really cook was an egg, but now that I am home with the baby, i have more time to cook and practice cooking "normal dinners" like what I grew up on. Plus most of the time it cost way less to cook yourself rather than buy prepared food!! hopefully i can come up with some good ideas for dinners when i go back to work f/t because i will be super busy but I do NOT want to return back to microwave land!!!
My favorite things to cook
rice...EASY, MY FAV FOOD, AND U CAN SERVE JUST ABOUT ANYTHING OVER IT! I also love to cook pork chops and get really creative w/seasonings and things like that. Spaghetti is another fav b/c its super easy and there are endless possibilities w/it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love this cake my gmom makes. I have to ask her what it is! I love our Thanksgiving dinner and thats about it on traditions!
My cooking triumphs
the dinner i made last night! Skillet Pork Chops from this website, Stuffed Peppers from this site and all of my creative and good tasting dishes!
My cooking tragedies
Asking my husb to prepare the dinner for me so that I could just pop it in the over when I got home from work... he misread the directions and the chicken was raw..GROSS. i ended up recooking the chicken and rice mixture in a skillet til it was done, but i was so grossed out i couldnt eat it!
