I am 20 years old and have been married to my high school sweetheart, Ryan, for a little over a year now. We are both very creative people in general and in the kitchen! We both love going out to new places for dinner and trying new things. We are constantly looking for fun and interesting things to do and our most recent is Frisbee golf. Both of us love basketball and volleyball though, especially the pool! Ryan and I are both graphic designers for different companies but own our own business as well and we are very excited to one day replace my income doing that so I can stay home with our children someday! That's just a little bit about me!
My favorite things to cook
I love making french silk pie, cookies, anything Italian but especially manicotti formaggio! I love breakfast food like stuffed french toast or crepes and can eat it at any time of day! I also love southern cooking even though it is almost never healthy! There is something about adding butter to everything that makes it taste better! My husband is very good with grilling, BBQ, and Asian food. He loves making stir-fry and is excellent with salads! I think our strengths and weaknesses in the kitchen make a great team when combined!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making button cookies and egg nogg every Christmas! We also make a Christmas tree out of cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning and put candles on it and light them while singing happy birthday to Jesus! Making homemade apple-butter and wassel around thanksgiving and grandma's honey-glazed ham always makes this season special! Puppy Chow is good year round and there is nothing like my dad's apple cake every year for my mom's birthday! Lemonade pie is always made during the summer, along with sweet sun-tea! Every Saturday morning from when I was little until I was a teenager my dad would make the fluffiest, most perfect chocolate chip pancakes that I have every eaten! That's one of the thing I missed most when I went away to college! On New Year's we always make several different kinds of fondue too! The cheese is always a favorite and usually gets eaten first but there is usually no chocolate fondue left either by the end of the night! My mom uses a recipe from my great grandmot
My cooking triumphs
I won one cooking contest for a chocolate mousse presentation when I was in 9th or 10th grade for my 4-H project.
My cooking tragedies
I once put a cup of salt in a peach cobbler instead of a cup of sugar! Luckily I was the only person that tasted it and it was quickly thrown away!
