My name is Nici Jones. I have been happily married to my best friend for 4 years. We haven't been blessed with children yet, but we hope that will change soon. I am just a beginner, but I already love cooking for my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake......even if I do not always have the best luck with it. I like to decorate cakes. I do alot of Italian and chicken dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up we didn't have alot of money, so we learned to make the most of what we had. Some of the best meals came from throwing together what few things we had. My Mom was a master at that. So I guess that my favorite tradition would be cooking simple down-home food.
My cooking triumphs
I could not make a chess pie. They just never came out right....to be honest they never turned out edible at all. I came across a recipe on here for a buttermilk chess pie. I figured that I would try it for Thanksgiving. It turned out beautifully. Both my husbands family and mine loved it and I got several requests for the recipe. It felt amazing to watch them enjoy something that I had made with my own two hands.
My cooking tragedies
Way tooo many.
