I'm a 30-something singleton who absolutely LOVES to cook and bake! I'm all about trying new things - once if they work - twice if I fail the first time! HA! :-)
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake more than anything, but I really enjoy just spending time whipping up whatever! I never turn away a new recipe (unless the ingredients are too pricey...but even then I'll splurge). I love my crock-pot and my only wish is a bigger kitchen!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm really the first cook in my family. My mom makes really good burnt meatloaf and really good mac and cheese. That's about it. I learned the basics from a nanny I had growing up, and I'm self-taught from there. I was making full family meals by myself before I was 10, and I loved every minute of it. Of couse, there is some stress occasionally...but that makes the finished results even better!
