I'm wife to a wonderful hubby and mom to 3 beautiful young children. I love to cook and do so as often as I can. I like to try new things from this site, and usually try at least one new dish a week.
My favorite things to cook
Easy pasta dishes. Funky vegetarian bean dishes. Anything flavorful and healthy. Anything flavorful and indulgent. Mexican. Anything with avocado in it. Guacamole. Anything I can serve Guacomole with. :) Summer grilling. Winter soups. Sometimes homemade bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always makes caramel rolls on Christmas morning. (Except last year when the dough didn't rise and we didn't have them! The horror!)
My cooking triumphs
The chicken pot pie that made Marie Calendar herself jealous. Learning to make London Broil almost as good as my dad.
My cooking tragedies
The super-healthy nutty-crunchy bulgur casserole that went straight in the garbage can. The batches of cookies that I cook too long and are hard as a rock. (about 80% of the batches I bake succomb to this tradgedy - which is why cookie making is my husband's job!)
