I am a wife and mother of two kids - my 4 year old daughter has food allergies - milk and egg.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy foods that are safe and delicious for everyone in my family - after 3 years of cooking for a food allergic child, I am becoming a real pro at recipe revisions! I love to cook just about everything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pancakes for breakfast on Christmas morning - everyone picks their special ingredient - usually my kids pick blueberries and my husband leans towards chocolate chips!
My cooking triumphs
Mastering the art of cooking one meal for the whole family - I refuse to be a short order cook for my kids so they have a nice range of foods they'll eat and everything on the table is safe for my daughter.
My cooking tragedies
I made stir fry rice for my parents when I was about 10 years old - I watched Yan Can Cook on PBS and took copious notes but I missed the part where you cook the rice first! Needless to say, the rice was extra crispy as I added raw/uncooked rice to the soy sauce and veggie mixture. My dad ate a whole plate of it just to not hurt my feelings!
