I am a stay at home mom who recently had weight-loss surgery. I've lost 65 lbs in three months and can't eat much at all, however, I can eat my favorite foods minus sugary sweets. I generally cook what my husband and little girl would like to eat and try to cook new things.
My favorite things to cook
I like making new things that I've never made before for my family. When you have the same things, it tends to get boring to eat and to cook as well. My husband is a big man (6'8" and 300 lbs) and loves meat, meat, meat, so anything I cook has to have meat in it. I love cooking for my family though.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I first married I was 18 yrs old. I wanted to be the perfect housewife; cooking and cleaning for him. One day I decided to make a meatloaf, using EVERYTHING I could get my hands on in the fridge. It was HORRIBLE. My husband asked me to never make another meatloaf again... nine years later, I still haven't made another one.
