I am a mother of 2 wonderful boys aged 7 and 4. They do keep me busy all day long. I also have a husband who loves to eat but is worried about his health (his mother has brain washed him all his life). I love to cook and bake for my friends and family, feeding them is my way of showing them how much I love them!
My favorite things to cook
I truly enjoy trying new recipes, I don't like to repeat the same dishes everyday so I have a pile of "want to try" new recipes and hundreds of cookbooks I love to read and get inspirations from. Cooking and Baking are my addictions!!!! I spend too many hours on allrecipes every week looking for new recipes I want to try. I also like to make everything from scratch. My mom always made everything from scratch so as a child, I used to envy kids whose parents bought frozen food or prepared food, but now, I appreciate my mom cooking everyday and it's my turn to do the same for my kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have a tradition, both my husband's family and my family live hundreds and thousands of miles away so many holidays and weekends, we spend without them. But when we do get together, I like to cook different dishes and bake different treats for them.
