I am a 46 yr old mother of two - adult kids now who still live at home with us. With a family of four all working different hours, meals can sometimes be a challenge. My biggest challenge to posting on this site is that at this point in my life, I rarely measure ingredients but 'go by eye' so I will do my best to convert this into measurements.
My favorite things to cook
I have always liked to cook just about anything - I baked, made candies etc when I was younger alot - I find these days I am more into quick, easy and delicious. I also cook for two days and feeze for a months worth of meals & some desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lebanese food is a big favorite of ours, as well as traditional holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say my canned salsa since people have wanted to buy it from me or pay me to make them some - which I end up giving to them instead.
Also, my pancakes - which are a tad different from cakey pancakes - my husband won't eat any other pancakes.
Baking goods as well.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make ravioli by hand in my early 20's ( young and ambitious - lol) It took sooooooo long and no matter how thin I rolled it, the pasta still came out too thick. It scarred me, I have never tried to make homemade pasta again (except manicotti - which is a crepe) ha ha ha
One day I will get a pasta machine and try again
