31 year old mom of 4 month old twin boys, Matthew and Nicolas. They have very particular taste and I find myself on here daily gathering recipes that I can make quickly and make the whole family happy. It's not easy to work all day get home at 5:30 and serve dinner by 6:00, some days a half an hour is all you've got. And with two screaming toddlers at your ankles the slow cooker is my best friend. I love comming home to a home made roast beef with veggies all ready to go.
My favorite things to cook
I love making gift desserts, by gift desserts I mean the kind of beautifully presented cake or banana loaf that you can give and have someone appreciate. If ever you have a difficult person at christmas to shop for, bake them some nice holiday cup cakes, comes from the heart.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family when I was growing up was into take out, and ordering food and I've chosen to do my best to keep that away from my children and make home cooking a family affair. Even at 18 months old my twin boys help make banana bread, they're great little banana mashers.
My cooking triumphs
The day I baked my first from scratch pie crust, I got the recipe here it's fantastic easy and wow's everyone even my critical MOM! I invented a berry filling and it just happened to turn out fantastically and my husband requestes it every year on his birthday.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot grill a steak if my life depended on it, I leave the BBQ to my husband. It's always over cooked or way undercooked.
