I was born in NY but moved around the US as a Navy brat. Found most of my roots of cooking come from down south after being stationed in Texas the longest amount of time. I am a mother of three and a wife to a southern creole husband, which makes for an interesting dinner plan each and every night.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer Italian foods with cream sauces, butter sauces, wine sauces. The kids love my Zuppa Toscano soup and Chicken French. My husband loves my meatloaf and gumbo. I love to try new flavors and sometimes they work and sometimes they dont. But its the fun of trying to not be too boring with food when you are a busy working mom.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The husband likes everything spicy and rich while I like it light and salty. One kid wont eat veggies while the other is lactose intolerant. Its hard to find things that work for everyone without making multiple meals.
