Wife and mother of young twins. I enjoy cooking and am adequate, but have a lot to learn. We try to eat organic and unprocessed foods. I don't have a lot of time to spend cooking.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook all types of food. However, I do not do the grilling, that is hubby's job!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving... I hosted this day for many years, and enjoyed preparing the whole meal. Now, we've moved it to my brother's home due to space for all the people, but we all chip in on the cooking!
My cooking triumphs
My first extended family meal prepared by myself only. It was on Easter and I prepared a Horse Radish rubbed Prime Rib Roast. YUM!!! Even my very hard to please Uncle Rube approved!
Also, years ago I searched and searched until I could find the perfect Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe to fix for my hubby's birthday. I found a great recipe, but made a few changes, (using honey instead of sugar in the icing, and adding extra spices). My husband loves it! It is now a tradition on his birthday, as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to list! :)
