I am a working mother that loves to cook and experiment. I mostly enjoy nice traditional meals that bring the family together. I absolutely LOVE this site and the variety it brings to our table. The recipes I have found here have become the best traditions at our family gathers. Thanks for making cooking so handy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to do the big tradtional family meals. You know the ones that keep you in the kitchen all day long. In the summer my family is big on convenience and bar-be-ques. And of course there is always the need for that special dish they all rave over at the Church potluck!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies with my little guy. We love to give cookies during the holidays and the ones we find here are delicious. It makes baking so much fun when I have a little helper.
My cooking triumphs
I actually found this site trying to learn how to bake a Turkey. It was my first Thankgiving to entertain my daughter-in-law and future daughter-in-law. I had made turkeys in the past, but always too dry. Thanks to this site I made the most moist, tender Thanksgiving Turkey ever! It was the best meal ever. Thanks for helping me impress the ones I wanted to impress most.
My cooking tragedies
My very first attempt at bringing a dish for the annual Thanksgiving feast once I married and left home was an absolute fiasco! I wanted to impress my father with my version of my grandmothers tried and true coconut cream pie. I called grams and wrote down her every word, or at least what I thought I heard. She told me to use corn starch and I wrote corn syrup! Needless to say even a stay in the freezer wouldn't make my pie set up. Oh well, there was always next year...I chose something premixed in a box!
