I'm a Mom, which means I love to cook wonderful things, but do so on a Mom's budget. My daughter has Celiac, so we cook everyday things gluten free around here. I'm always happy to share GF recipes that work for us.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Gluten Free adaptations to everyday recipes, healthy whole foods, sinful southern foods, cheesecake... Really just about everything. I cook foods from all over the globe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was younger I baked pies with my Grandmother, made a Blueberry muffin recipe that was from scratch that I still use, and now? I enjoy cooking with my oldest daughter and we like to play "Chopped" at home. We live in a large metropolitan area with many grocery options. We are constantly looking for new foods, spices, and unique flavor combinations.
My cooking triumphs
Making every day foods gluten free for my daughter. This includes Chicken and Dumplings. Something one would never think would be possible to cook Gluten Free. In addition, we make all other foods this way from meatballs to desserts to gravy... We do it all gluten free around here.
My cooking tragedies
Cooking tragedies... Mine have been when I made the best desserts, and due to my klutziness, never made it to the intended table. This includes an owl cake, cheesecakes, layered cakes... I've since learned to let someone else carry it from point A to point B.
