I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother with one son. I've been cooking for myself since my teens. I love baking breads, cookies and cakes and feel pretty competent in that area. I also enjoy making jams and jellies. I'm still learning how to cook for a small family after many years of marriage - I can only get better with time!
My favorite things to cook
I like to try new things, but my husband doesn't. That said, I like to find new ways to do the usual stuff without my husband noticing! My favorite thing is to bake! Wish my hubby liked pies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm still learning the traditions of my in-laws since I live closer to them than my own family. My mother-in-law prepares the majority of all traditional family meals so I don't play a large part in that. I enjoy making desserts for holiday gatherings...give me my space in the kitchen and let me work...and I'm happy!
My cooking triumphs
None I can think of...I guess any meal that everyone likes is a triumph in itself! I'd like to find a couple of recipes that are no-miss for company - that would be a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention....live and learn!
