I am a homeschooling SAHM. I love to cook with fresh ingredients when possible. My local farmer's market is a wonderful asset.
My favorite things to cook
Anything. Spices and seasonings can transform any ingredient to something new. You can travel the world by just changing the spices with which you cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to teach my kids how to cook. It is a shame that people reach adulthood not knowing how to cook. Bring the kids into the kitchen. Not only are you teaching your kids a valuable life lesson, but you are spending time with them. Also, kids are more likely to try something new if they helped to make it.
My cooking triumphs
I can cook just about anything. I am particularly skilled at creating a recipe out of seemingly unrelated ingredients, and having it become a new favorite.
My cooking tragedies
Brownies. I cook, I bake, I grill. I cannot do brownies. Luckily, I have friends for that.
