I'm a newlywed from PA. We both love to cook and often share time in the kitchen. We've just bought our first grill and we're excited to start discovering some great grilling recipes. Our family consists of two cats and a dog who never fail to make us laugh.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, so cookies, cakes and pies are my go to items. I also love standing at the stove with a pound of chicken or beef and just creating something yummy for dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up baking cookies with my Grandmother every Saturday morning. I miss those simple days with no stress almost as much as I miss her. Now I make her cookies often just to remember and share them with family and friends. Using her recipes helps me hang onto those memories.
My cooking triumphs
My cookies, cakes and other baked goods. I've always wanted to be a pastry chef and open my own shop. I love baking for my family and friends and listening to the mmmmm's.
My cooking tragedies
Jello brings me down each and every time. For some reason I just cannot make Jello.
