About this Cook
I am 25 years old and am very comfortable in the kitchen. I have been cooking in the kitchen with my grandmother and mother since I was able to walk. I love everything you can do in the kitchen. I am also interested in beginning my owning catering business. I bake cakes and cookies for birthdays, graduations, and other special occasions. I am a Pharmacy Technician and have an Associate's Degree in the matter. I am currently planning for three weddings so that has entailed a lot of cooking. This weekend for instance I am currently planning my sister's bridal shower, bachelorette party, and wedding! I was in a car accident 5 months ago and am still slowly healing so I am finding some of this a little overwhelming at times!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook period. I will pretty much cook just about anything. I mainly focus on the basics, such as homestyle cooking and anything with beef or pork in it since I live on a farm!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am of full German descent so pretty much anything that has to do with Bratwurst and sauerkraut. I also really enjoy italian cooking and other homestyle favorites. I cook for a crowd of about 3-5 about 4 times a week so I am always making more than we need. I grew up in a home of 8 (6 kids and 2 parents) so I learned to cook way too much very early on!!!
My cooking triumphs
Everyone always likes everything I make. I am especially well known for a good lasagna, baked steak, my mashed potatoes, twice baked potatoes, sausage, biscuits, and kraut and my infamous sugar cookies.
My cooking tragedies
I am not very good at gourmet cooking, but I am trying. If it isn't a well known kitchen item then I probably haven't cooked with it. I just started using polenta and panchetta!

Golden Pork Chops
I am pretty sure this is our new favorite pork chop recipe!!! It was so easy...I didn't saute anything...i just put the pork chops in the pan and mixed the onions, mushrooms, and cream soup together and spooned over top!!! It was excellent!!!
