I'm a fulltime manager as well as a fulltime mom. I use cooking to interact with my kids (as well as to satisfy my cravings!)
My favorite things to cook
We like to make cookies and we're always looking for interesting (but kid-friendly) one dish and pressure cooker meals
My favorite family cooking traditions
Most of my family's favorites are hand-me-downs from my mother: angel food cake, classic cheesecake, bread. Lately I've developed some additional expertise in finger foods - I've become the "Antipasto Expert" for potluck meals with my husband's family.
My cooking triumphs
I made nine cakes for my son's baptism party (many in advance, some the day of) and they all held up great despite the outdoor reception in 90 degree heat!
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to mention...
