About this Cook
I am a full time working mother of 2 children, husband and Black lab. Life is busy juggling kids school, sports, and work. I like to provide my family with healthy good food fast. I wish I had more time to cook - I am always seeking tips on keeping meals healthy while on the go and new and innovative ideas for the kids lunch box!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking with my Mother during the holidays as a child. My Mother would start baking weeks before and make all kinds of cookies, cakes, and quick breads for gifts. I loved the looks on people's faces when receiving it. They could not wait to break open the wrapping and dig in. I may not have the time to do as much - but my children and I with my husband making christmas cut out cookies - and save them for Santa on Christmas Eve.
My cooking triumphs
My pies for thanksgiving=2012.
My cooking tragedies
Dry corn bread during college.
