I'm a fulltime wife and mother who is getting more involved in cooking meals beyond "the basics" now that my kids are older and enjoy eating foods besides cheeseburgers and pizza :-) I enjoy being physically fit (I lift weights 5-6 times a week) and for the most part follow a healthy diet, but I also love to splurge calorie-wise on a terrific recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Barbeque! Anything with a white sauce, bonus points if that sauce includes wine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making homemade ice cream every year for Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My most recent (2008) Christmas dinner for the extended family. Each dish was a 5-star success!
My cooking tragedies
I can't whip up a meringue to save my life :-(
