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! We had our first child Dec. 2013 and I am looking forward to making his baby food and finding out what he likes and doesn't like. I can't wait to teach him how to cook, but at the same time don't want to rush his growing up either! :) 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.
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!
