I am 39. I am a stay at home mom who is blessed with a husband and daughter who are always willing to try new foods and dishes. I enjoy surfing the net for new recipes and adding them to my computer database.
My favorite things to cook
I love making up stews and soups. Also, I enjoy taking things I have on hand and figuring out something creative to make with them. I like to cook chicken because it is so versatile. I also enjoy preparing seafood. Meatloafs and crockpot recipes are fun as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter is taking an interest in cooking so we usually have at least one night a week where we play "cooking show". I am the host and she is the sous chef. We pretend we are on our own show as she learns to prepare the night's meal.
My cooking triumphs
Recreating a favorite restaurant tortilla soup. It took several tries but I finally figured out all the secret ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
The tragedies have mostly been in baking. The worst was an attempted cheesecake. Also..I have yet to figure out how to cook scallops correctly so they aren't rubbery.
