I am married and a stay-at-home mom of one son (a toddler). I wouldn't consider myself an "expert" as noted above but I do have 20 years of cooking experience. I grew up with a mom and grandma who both loved to cook and bake and were very good at it (they both worked in food service for over 20 years). They cooked mostly from scratch and I, too make every effort to cook from scratch.
My favorite things to cook
Anything that we love to eat!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I get together during the Christmas holidays and make cookie and candy specialties.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a pretty basic cook so I don't have any major feats to mention.
My cooking tragedies
Nothing stands out in my memory, except for the occasional incidents of accidentally leaving something out of a recipe.
