I really enjoy cooking and baking. I mainly go by recipes that I find interesting. I do like to add my own flavor and pizzazz. I never use a timer whether its for baking or cooking...I usually just know when its done (and no mess-ups either!). My specialty is cupcakes...I love cupcakes! I hope to open my own cupcake shop one of these days :) I started cooking because my fiance went on a deployment for 6 months. I felt like I was fixing the same thing all the time so I wanted to shake things up so I decided to try a bunch of new recipes and found out that I really enjoyed cooking. When my fiance came back I had lots of new and interesting things for him to try...so now I have a very happy husband who loves my food!

My favorite things to cook
Cupcakes, things with lots of cheese, Southern foods (fried chicken, mac & cheese, cornbread), I love the slow cooker, and desserts. I also like to go to the weekend Farmers Market to get fresh ingredients. I usually get fresh fruits, veggies, and eggs. I love the Farmers Market!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom really wasn't much of a cooker...
My cooking triumphs
chocolate cupcakes...super moist and oh so delicious! Fried chicken, I've perfected it. Chicken Penne with Vodka Sauce...one of the family favorites.
My cooking tragedies
Red velvet cupcakes, I haven't figured out how to get them just right...they are dense and not light and fluffy like they should be.
