About this Cook
I'm a working mother of a family of five: two small kids, a teenager, and a husband who doesn't like anything that even looks remotely like it was made with milk. Keeping everyone happy at the dinner table is always a challenge! However, I refuse to give in to the pizza, chicken nugget, and dining out merry-go-round, preferring to prepare home made foods that are much more healthy.
My favorite things to cook
I love pasta, comfort foods, and anything that is quick, easy, and delicious! I love trying new recipes and combining canned goods with fresh foods for quick but tasty dining. When I used to have time to have cocktail parties, I considered appetizers my specialty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to prepare a Sunday roast every week (in the colder months)--switching between chicken and beef. My husband also likes to try to roast our Christmas turkey by a different method each year.
My cooking triumphs
Getting a dinner I made myself on the table on weeknights--I'm especially proud of my management skills when everything is ready to go on the table at the same time!! I try not to aim too high....
My cooking tragedies
My husband will never let me forget my attempt at Buffalo wings. Admittedly a horrendous failure.
