Waiting to walk down the aisle on my wedding day
About this Cook
I married my high school sweetheart in the summer of 2007. We moved into our first house September of 08 and it's been so fun! I am a social worker working with parents and babies birth to age three. My husband and I are part of a church in Middletown, Ohio called The Oaks Community Church.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love to bake. Cookies, brownies, breads, cupcakes - you name it, I love it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I always baked growing up - we made chocolate chip cookies like it was going out of style:) i definitely got my love of baking from her.
My cooking triumphs
The first meal I made for my husband when he said - wow, this is really good:) Also, I've been throwing more "dinner parties" of 6-10 people... when I can pull off a yummy successful dinner where I am able to be with my guests and non-stressed - thats definitely a triumph in my world:)
My cooking tragedies
Most of my first year of marriage... The first meal I made for my husband after our honeymoon, I tried to "throw together a casserole." I thought it was done and served it and the rice was still hard and uncooked. yuck!
