I've got my dream job right here at Allrecipes! Not only am I surrounded by people who love to share the good food they make--that explains the extra pounds I’m toting around--but I also get to talk to you about real world experiences of cooking and eating with family and friends. It's a subject close to my heart because I'm the only one who cooks at my house, so I know what it means to be a working mom trying to make meals for moving targets.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook anything that makes me close my eyes and say MMMMMMM! Then I can't see how much I messed up the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family tradition is that I prepare meals and my husband cleans up after me. So far it seems to be working for us.
My cooking triumphs
My triumphant moment came when I made pancakes from scratch that were so good I finally got my son's permission to stop buying the pancake mix he used to prefer over mom's home cooking.
My cooking tragedies
When I was a kid I tried to bake a cake for my little brother's birthday. It was so bad in so many ways...I just hope he knows I love him more than that cake would seem to indicate.
