Mother of 3, database programmer but currently not working, cooking seems to be one of my favorite things to do. Luckily my husband is a really good sport about doing dishes . ..
My favorite things to cook
The biggest challenge is finding foods that we all like, because we are all picky eaters. Plus I am currently avoiding wheat and milk . . . so that makes things challenging.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother had a degree in nutrition and a degree in food chemistry, had worked in restaraunts, and wrote several cookbooks when I was young. We grew up with a wide variety of gourmet foods - but i'd never even heard of grits or biscuits and gravy until I was in my 20s.
My cooking triumphs
Some of the cheesecakes I've made for my daughters b-days, wow!
My cooking tragedies
Best ever . . . I was making tomato soup and I was very tired and distracted. I mixed together the milk and cornstarch, wondering why it didnt seem as stiff as usual . .. but i poured it in to the soup anyways . . . and we had volcano tomato soup!!
