Well, I come from a small town in Wisconsin and now live in Utah. I love the outdoors and trying new things. I work as a Veterinary Technician and just recently graduated from school, so now I have more time to cook...I've discovered that cooking is actually a hobby I never knew I had.
My favorite things to cook
I used to enjoy cooking only desserts, but lately I'm excited to try anything new for our meals. I try to come up with different recipes for a different protein source so we're not having chicken two days in a row.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom used to cook a lot around the holidays, but my favorite was the sand tarts which I will someday put up here. They are a cookie my family fights over, but they require a lot of butter.
My cooking triumphs
Recently, I made fudge. It wasn't the consistency it needed to be, but it had form and tasted like fudge so I was fairly proud of myself.
My cooking tragedies
Well, I tried the chicken fajita melt recipe and didn't have enough sauce. My husband said he liked it though, so I guess it wasn't too horrible.
