Well, My name is Nikki. I am 23 and mother to my wonderful 3 year old son. We just recently moved into a new home with my son's father, who is also my loving boyfriend. I co-own a candle company with my mom, go to school full time, and also work part-time on and off. I have tons of family that I love, and have many different interests. I also have a lot of hopes and dreams for life!
My favorite things to cook
I love to eat food more than I love to cook it, but my favorite things to cook are comfort foods, Italian foods, and some gourmet dishes. I love to bake, although I am not very good at it. When things are in the oven, I tend to get distracted and burn things. Ooopppss!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every holiday, especially Christmas, is made for cookie making and decorating. St. Patrick's Day is Corned Beef. I love cooking the Ham at Christmas and Easter. Holidays are the best for cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I make a killer holiday ham. I am also very, very good, not to sound conceded, at throwing together a bunch of ingredients lying around the house to make on delicious meal. I also like to add my own personal touch to recipes to make it my own.
My cooking tragedies
Like I mentioned, things in the oven do not do so well with me. If I don't see it, it tends to slip my mind. My worse cooking experience so far, breads. Garlic breads, beer breads, I tend to overcook them all. I have to work on that.
