I have always loved to cook. I learned on March 10, 2014 that I am allergic to multiple foods. It has created a new challenge for me. I have learned so much more about food and alternative ways to cook. It has been frustrating and enlightening.
My favorite things to cook
I am forced and challenged to cook as frugally as possible. We have chosen to live a thrifty lifestyle, so that I can stay home with the kids. Hubby says that I can make something from nothing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking as a family. My kids have been cooking for as long as they can remember. I am very proud of the box of recipes found from my grandmother. Some are over 100 years old.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my husband to eat some vegetarian meals. Sticking to a food budget of $400 per month and still having food left in the freezer and pantry at the end of the month.
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes, a new recipe doesn't get eaten. The kids do not like to try new things. I get bored making the same things. I guess the kids like routine.
