I've been married almost a year, I have an 8 year old son and I am pregnant with my second child. I love experimenting with new recipes and entertaining. I have been cooking since I was about 3 years old (eggs in the microwave and chocolate milk) and have been passionate about it ever since. I think my mom had it pretty easy with me around since I was always making dinner for the family.
My favorite things to cook
I don't really have one favorite thing. I just enjoy trying new styles and techniques. I am always trying to put a new twist on everyday recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Playing cards with my grandfather while we waited for the yellow rice and chicken to cook. My dad's chili, I can never make it taste the way he can. And my family always finding an excuse to get together and have a cookout.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I roasted a chicken in the oven and it wasn't dry.
My cooking tragedies
I'll be the first to admit when I made something that doesn't tase good. One time I tried making honey orange chicken in the slow cooker. It spent all day in the slow cooker and when I was finally time to eat we took one bite and spit it out! I had to throw it all out. Turns out I had grabbed Wildflower Honey at the store instead of Clover Honey. Wildflower honey is just not for us!
