I started cooking at the age of 8, mainly because my mother didn't like to bake! I quickly progressed from cake mixes to recipes for cookies, etc. I enjoy trying new recipes and always read the reviews first (so helpful).
My favorite things to cook
Dishes that can be cooked ahead of time and kept in the fridge, ready to take with me or heat up when I get home from a long day.
I also like to fix meals for family and friends to make them feel special.
My cooking triumphs
I guess I could consider myself to be a "Soup Nazi!" We eat lots of soup at our house. I've developed my homemade chili and soup recipes over the years.
