I am a very busy mom of two busy teenagers.
My favorite things to cook
lasagna, breakfast casserole, grilled asparagus, grilled zucchini, grilled corn.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Carrot pie and chocolate silk pie. Every holiday I have to make these. Spinach balls as an appetizer are a family favorite. I mix and shape them and freeze a batch. My kids eat them as snacks, they can be baked frozen, just add 3-5 minutes to the bake time.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake, carrot cake, chocolate cake, banana cake, prune cake, oatmeal cake.
My cooking tragedies
White cakes. I have not found a white cake recipe that I can depend on.
