I am a 38 yr old mom and wife. I love to cook and over the years have passed that on to my son. I now work outside the home during the evenings and my 17 yr old son has learned to take over the kitchen for evening meals. Convenience foods are too expensive and just not healthy enough for every day eating so I use allrecipes.com to find new recipes for my son to try out.
My favorite things to cook
Recently, my favorite things to cook are stir fry and mexican foods. I enjoy spending my days off in the kitchen working beside my son.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Friday evening, my son and I spend some time together making something yummy. I chop the veggies and he seasons the meat - he is getting so good with the spices.
My cooking tragedies
Once, I pulled a recipe off the net for making a pumpkin pie. Since I was a newbie at making pumkin pies I didn't realize that sugar was missing from the list of ingredients. I took the pie to my families Thanksgiving dinner and that was when my mom told me what I had done wrong! It was embarassing, especially since she is such a pie queen!
