Married little under two years. Stay at home mom of an infant. I always enjoyed helping my mother and grandmothers in the kitchen, but never seemed to go from start to finish. Recently I have gotten into the kitchen and started trying new recipes. I like to plan what I make and also cook things with things I already have...no store running for me. All I'm trying to do is put a descent meal on the table for my hubby.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make appetizers and bake goodies. I'm always searching for a "good" and "exciting" appetizer that no one has had before. I also like to try new things that I didn't grow up eating. Casseroles and one dish meals are often made because I'm only cooking for two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year around Christmas time, my family gets together and we make Christmas treats. I remember those nights we would sit at the table and wrap homemade caramels and frost sugar cookies. Now that I have a family of my own, that is definitely one of the traditions I want to continue.
My cooking tragedies
I was 13yrs old and had to call my mom while babysitting to ask her how to make macaroni and cheese. I definitely overcame that day in my life, as mac and cheese is one of my favorites these days....and I make it from scratch.
