I grew up in Delaware and never left! I live very close to some amazing beaches and within driving distance of some fabulous cities. I love allrecipes and make recipes from it several times a week.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to grill all year long. I'll even venture out into the snow to grill. I am also a potato freak and love to try any new potato recipes. I credit allrecipes for making me a better cook. I always read the reviews and tweak them, if needed, according to the reviews. I always try to make new things from here - this year I've been really into soups! I've found some amazing soup recipes on here. I recently got a bread machine so have been having fun with that as well. Soup and bread go so well together! I also think this site has made me gain weight...yes, I'll blame allrecipes! ;-)
My cooking tragedies
Still working on learning how to make bread. Even though I have a bread maker, I am discovering it's easy to screw up bread. I got the bread maker a few months ago, so try to make a couple of loaves a week. Only a few have been almost perfect. Most of them have been almost hollow inside. I am definitely more of a cooker than a baker. I don't like to measure ingredients!
