I am a mom to one energetic little guy and wife to a great, but busy husband. I enjoy cooking, when I plan, but I often forget that it is almost dinner time and have to scramble to put something together. I have recently been making an effort to go all organic/natural with my cooking and to make as much as possible from scratch... which can sometimes be a tall order.
My favorite things to cook
one-skillet chicken dishes and most any baked dessert
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom is a fabulous cook - famous for her cookies!
My cooking triumphs
My Artichoke Chicken invention!
My cooking tragedies
Holiday Dinner Party for my husband's new job - hosted at our house. Nothing went right... too much food, not the right food, baking disasters. No one touched the black bean soup (not even the Vegan's). I forgot to spray the muffin tins for my mini-quiche, so they stuck to the bottom and were horribly disfigured when I got them out. Made the bruchetta ahead of time and it was gross soggy. The list goes on. Oh, and I was meeting all of these people for the first time.
