A wife and work-from-home Mom to 4 kiddos. I find less and less time to scratch cook and bake, which are my passions, but when this site is great for when I'm in a pinch!
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods, ribs, fish, pasta, vegetables, Thanksgiving dinner, creamy soups, roasts
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite nights to cook are when we grill because I prepare all the food and my husband mans the grill (with some help from our little boy) and it's a real family affair.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering slow cooked ribs and homemade bbq sauce. It took years but I finally perfected my technique and they NEVER disappoint.
My cooking tragedies
I've made some gnarly pasta recipes, both my own experiments and other people's recipes. For some reason, pasta dishes have a tendency more than others to go horribly wrong for me. I believe pasta should be simple to be delicious but every now and then I'll try some crazy, complicated recipe and end up ruining an entire meal.
