I am a married to a wonderful husband who is a fire fighter. We have two great kids under the age of 8. It is a challenge to cook in our house, since he has so many tasty things at the fire station.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. When I was in high school, I used to sell all of my baked goods and decorate cakes in order to pay for my way in sports. Since having kids it is more difficult to find the time to bake, but I try to find recipes that my kids can help me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We make a roast in rock salt every year at Thankgsgiving. I don't know how it started but it is something we have always done. You cover a standing rib roast in rock salt and bake it (500 degrees). When it comes out of the oven the salt has solidified over the meat. But the result is delicious and tender.
