I'm 26 years old and happily married to my husband of 6 years. I love to cook, but after a day with a class full of kindergartners I get tired so I do like to make simple meals.
My husband and I have two adorable pups, a Beagle named Guff and a Beagle/Coonhound named Zoe.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, beef, and pasta dishes. I'd really like to learn more casserole dishes.
My husband's favorite things to eat are chicken enchildas, spaghetti, meatloaf, and Japanese chicken and steak with veggies
My cooking triumphs
My chicken Marsala comes out really well and I have quite a bit of comments on my chicken con queso dish. I have to admit, my personal triumph was a cheesecake I made in January 2007. I put a lot of effort into it and it came out perfect...taste, look, texture, everything - too bad I didn't write the recipe down.
My cooking tragedies
Cookies. I just can't get them to puff up. Their either too flat, or they turn out like pancakes. I baked chocolate chip cookies for my brother for his birthday a few years ago, and he ended up eating them with maple syrup because they were so pancake like!
