I am a mom to 2 and a grandmother to 2. I work part time as a nurse. I am very involved with my family and love to cook for them.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try out new recipes. I stay away from recipes that will require me to buy a lot of exotic ingredients. I find it a waste to buy something I will use a bit of once and then have to throw away. So I am more of a simple cook. But I love to be challenged. I like to make theme meals for my family and enjoy searching for the recipes to fit my theme.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinners are always special. I try a new theme each week. I try new recipes out on them also.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking is much better than my baking. I feel I have triumphed whenever someone says this is so good. That is what I want to do. Please my guests.
My cooking tragedies
I have failed baking many times. I think I have an attitude problem I do so much better at cooking so I focus there. But when I do bake something wonderful it stays in my favorite file and I use it over and over. I can not make bread and won't even try again.
