Thanks for all your responses. There were great ideas. I really wanted to use the cookie pops but I couldn't find those sticks for sale. We live in Japan and they don't do much baking or "sweets" making. It might be a little complicated for my cooking skills too. We had oodles of chocolate chip…
I am a military wife and mother of three young children. We are originally from the Midwest. My husband is a US Marine and are stationed in San Diego.
I love the variety of fresh fruits and vegetables available year round. My husband and I love to experiment with new recipes. I like to cook and bake. I don't have too much extra time to get away from my tried and true recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make soup. It's my favorite thing to eat. But it's more work than I usually have time for. I like to make cookies too. But that causes an issue for me when I have them in the house!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My wonderful great grandmother was a wonderful cook. She made the best homemade chicken and noodles. It's something I've never learned to do. My best memory is keeping her company in the kitchen. Shared meals is a big part of our family traditions.
My cooking tragedies
I decided to make a Turtle cheesecake for our big family Christmas dinner. I didn't allow myself enough time and it was a big warm goopy mess. I don't know if anyone ate it. It was a tragedy that the thing went to waste because of my poor planning.
