Am 40 years old and have cooked very little in my life. I have looked at it as "work" and have shied away from it. Now I have two children under 2 and have taken it upon myself to become a better cook. It is not only teaching my children survival but finding the love and passion in a part of my life that I have so easily overlooked while concentrating on career! I hope to instill in them the love of food and the ability to cook a healthy meal... be it a quick snack or a family holiday!
My favorite things to cook
Used to be sweets, but now I am focused on meal time variety!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We didn't cook much at home, with mom raising us alone and working 2 jobs. This was the start of my aversion to cooking. Now I hope to nurture cooking in my children, and create traditions of our own.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my ex-husband's 14 year old while the ex was deployed for a year. It is kind of a blur!! lol
My cooking tragedies
Many of the meals I cooked while the ex was deployed, lol.
