I'm a 31 year old office manager and have been married to an amazing man for the past 8 years. He's a very willing guinea pig when it comes to my cooking! We are total DINKs - Double Income, No Kids. We live in a rural suburb east of Seattle.
I love, love, love to cook! I learned the majority of my skills from my Grandma. She is a fabulous cook!! She taught me how to "work with what you've got".
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with recipes. I'm also a big fan of converting recipes to "Hobo Style" - anything I can whip up with ready-made, convenience items in a minimal amount of time. Think "Semi-Homemade w/ Sandra Lee" type stuff; Though I don't really care for any of her recipes. Ironic. :)
My cooking triumphs
Gravy!! I can finally make a good gravy. Thank you, Grandma! ;)
My cooking tragedies
When I was younger I attemped to make chocolate chip cookies. Once they were done I realized that I had neglected to add salt to the recipe. So, being the problem solver that I am I just went ahead and sprinkled some on top of each cookie. GROSS.
