Well, I wear a lot of different hats in life. I got married to a wonderful man, Alex, on Oct. 25, 2008 and we found out around the time that we were planning our wedding that we're also having a baby:)! So, I'm a future Mommy and also a loving wife. Not only that, but I am a Special Education teacher and I'm working on my Master's online in Special Education. So, you can add teacher and graduate student to my list of hats...whew! I love to hang out with my friends and family, watch movies, paint ceramics, do cross stitch, read books, go shopping, and my favorite exercise is water aerobics. I love country music and dancing also;)! Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, and Dancing with the Stars are some of my favorite shows along with watching Paula Deen and Rachael Ray.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook shrimp fettucini alfredo when I'm not pregnant. I love comfort food and have recently found that whole wheat pasta is very beneficial to one's health. Anything that goes in the slow cooker is my friend if it tastes great and it's healthy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to eat my Mom's cooking. I like to make rice krispy treats for my students and that's really my only tradition.
My cooking triumphs
I rely on simple, easy to make recipes that are tasty. Meatloaf seems to be my triumph because it's simple and easy to make. Not only that, but the ingredients are always in my kitchen and everyone seems to like it.
My cooking tragedies
HAHA! When I was 19 and I was a semester out of my dorm room, I decided to fry pork chops. I was told that smoke was billowing out of my apartment sliding glass door that I opened and my boyfriend had fun laughing because the smoke alarm went off. For awhile, Pizza Hut was on speed dial until I got the hang of some simple recipes. HAHA! Thank goodness I've found some easy recipes to make over the last 11 years since then. And needless to say...I DON'T MAKE FRIED FOOD VERY OFTEN!
