I am a mom of two beautiful girls. I am president of a local MOMS Club chapter. I love to experiment with cooking new recipes and finding new family favorites.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grill and I love to use the slow cooker even more. Simple, easy recipes are my favorite.
When I want to make something more involved, I cook Middle Eastern dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am pretty much self-taught. My mom worked full time when I was growing up so there was little time to cook together. My grandmother was a pretty boring...specializing in meat and potatoes.
I cook with my 4 year old daughter. She really enjoys helping and it is great "together" time.
My cooking triumphs
When someone asks me for my recipe, I get really excited. It says that I have made a great meal!
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of one in particular, but anytime you have company and dinner just doesn't turn out the way you had hoped!
