From a tiny little town in Michigan, just trying to get by in a new place. Cooking has always been something I was delicate with, and never enjoyed quite so much until recently. My better half always has me looking for new ways to make him say "Mmm" and allrecipes has really helped me to step away from what I'm comfortable with and try new things in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make stews! There's just something about a half-dozen different flavors coming together to make something unique...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's pistachio dessert that she always makes for the holidays!
My cooking triumphs
The very first time I baked a pie totally from scratch. It was a coconut cream pie, and I had made it for my fiance's birthday. His reaction after the first bite couldn't have been better!
My cooking tragedies
The worst thing that ever happened in the kitchen was when I very young, and I was cooking bacon, and the paper towel I had been laying the cooked bacon on had caught fire from the stove. If it hadn't been for my sister's quick thinking I may have caught the whole house on fire! We never told our mother. o_o
