About me...well cooking has been apart of my life since I can remember. My grandma used to make EVERYTHING from scratch. My favorite pastime when visiting, was watching her make cinnamon rolls. I didn't start a passion for cooking, however, until I started dating the man I would marry. He loved to eat and I thought the way to his heart has got to be through his stomach, right?!?!? Well, it worked! Cooking relaxes me, like a good book. I love making a mess but hate cleaning it up!
My favorite things to cook
Its always evolving and forever changing! I've found I have a knack for finding really great appetizers for special events and I'd rather cook than bake. I love pairing cheeses with wine and having people over to try them. Although that's been put on the back burner since we're expecting our first child in Dec. 2013.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My great grandmother was from Germany and made some amazing dishes. The two I remember helping her with the most were her meat balls and German chocolate cake. I've started my own traditions with my husband now, I love making Irish Soda Bread each year for St. Patty's Day, a nod to his family history. We've also decided to take on Thanksgiving, so far we've been quite successful!
My cooking tragedies
Definitely have had my share!
