I'm a stay-at-home mom and I cook very often. I pack breakfast and lunch for my husband every day and try to make tasty and healthy dinners each night. I like to try new recipes out all the time and like to watch the cooking shows to get new ideas.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook just about anything but I really like making beautiful, yummy desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always makes everything so tasty! I'm learning from her all the time. She makes a lot of things "juicy", like with a sauce of some sort. I have to watch her to learn her techniques because if I ask her how to do something, she always says "I never measure and I make it a little bit different every time."
My cooking triumphs
I did my first Thanksgiving dinner in 2005 and it was a success. From the planning to the execution I had it all under control and my guests (about 15) were impressed!
My cooking tragedies
Ok, well while I was about 8 months pregnant, I decided to make spaghetti and meatballs one night for dinner. The only sheet pan I found to bake my meatballs did not have sides, but I used it anyway. Needless to say, the grease from the meat poured off the pan and I had a grease fire on my hands! Yes, I called 911 and the fire department came over and everything! Thank goodness the fire was contained in the oven, there was not much damage and we all had a laugh afterwards.
