I feel like I’m 24 yrs old, but I’m not. And at last count I've got 2 kids & a husband. I'm SAHM with most days are filled with cleaning, sweeping, breaking up fights, time outs, cooking, bathing, running errands and of course playing.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a meat and pototoes kinda gal. However, I'm in love w/ Texmex. And being transplanted to Cali I have been trying to get it right. I wish I could afford to fly to Texas whenever I wanted to just to help w/my cravings :-)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Love Love Love the big holiday meals. For years I "helped" my Grandma and Mom, then it was Grandma watching and advising as my older sister & I made the traditional turkey meal. I'm now on my own and w/two little ones I get take out! :0
My cooking triumphs
My husband calls them Jana surprises. Usually a combination of several recipes made into Surprise!! It's what's for dinner.
My cooking tragedies
1. Boiled the chicken in vinegar instead of white cooking wine. I didn't know what I was doing until my sister walked in and announced "It smells like Easter!" 2. I once was responsible for preparing and serving my sister's bday cake at her party. I placed the cake in the oven; went upstairs to gussy up; came back into the kitchen and learned I had broiled her Birthday Cake!
