I am a divorced, working mom of two wonderful kids and am blessed enough to work from home for a major insurance company. I love experimenting with cooking and trying all kinds of different recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking a variety of different foods and enjoy baking as well. I love cooking new recipes for my children and getting their reactions. They are my guinea pigs! When I find a recipe that they both like I am thrilled and add it to my rotation so that they can enjoy and experience a variety of foods. Variety is the spice of life!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a wonderful cook and since she was a stay at home mom I have so many fond memories of her cooking wonderful meals and goodies all of the time! Especially at the holidays, our kitchen was like Santa's workshop because it was filled with candies, cookies, cakes and pies. She would make all kinds of treats and fill festive holiday tins with goodies for my father's employees, family members, neighbors and friends. She is truly my cooking hero. I am not near the cook that she is and since I am a working mom I can't cook to the extent that she did, but I still try to cook big meals for my kids every chance I get. I also enjoy baking at the holidays for my family, friends and neighbors. I really enjoy cooking big holiday meals for my family. When I was a child my mom did the same and she always made all holidays special because of this and created wonderful childhood memories that I hold near to my heart. I hope that I am creating these same warm memories for my kids.
My cooking triumphs
When I am able to cook something that both my 18 year old son and my 12 year old daughter BOTH give two thumbs up to. That is when i know I have really done somethin!!! :)
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list but fortunately the more I cook the better I get!!!! LOL!
