I'm Katie, I still live at home with my family, friends of the family, my fiance, and numerous pets. I recently got engaged on April 1st, 2010. This is what fueled me to learn to cook. I learn from my parents, but I put my own healthier spin on everything. I work out 3-4 times a week for a year now. I've been bettering myself since May 2009 and haven't looked back. I feel like a teenager again, it's liberating. Also, I'm a crazy cat lady and love heavy metal. =^_^=
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I try to bake at least 3 times a week. I love to cook chicken and turkey with lots of vegetables I enjoy. I'm very picky.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Marinated pepper encrusted pork tenderloin, Chicken or beef stew with dumplings, French Grey salt seasoned baked chicken thighs, Homemade potato salad and potato au gratin.
My cooking triumphs
Everything but low fat/low calorie frostings come out amazing. :)
My cooking tragedies
Baking is a bit trickier with substituting fats and sugars. The cakes come out perfect, the frostings always give me a hassle.
