I am the mom to two boys. With three men in my house someone is always hungry. I am a CPA and work full time while my other half is a stay at home dad. He takes care of everything else, but cooking is not his strong point. Good thing is that I enjoy cooking, but am not very creative. It is my Type A personality that drives me to simpler recipes and monthly meal planning.
My favorite things to cook
Anything italian...I am well known for my lasagna. I also LOVE Thanksgiving and cook a mean turkey.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom wasn't really a cook, so I didn't develop a love of food till I grew up. I do remember baking with my mom and I share that tradition with my children.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a full Thanksgiving dinner for 25 every year!
My cooking tragedies
Blueberry pork loin....it was purple!!! It didn't taste all that bad, but nobody wants to eat purple meat. Now I try out any new recipes BEFORE I invite people over.
