My little family
About this Cook
I'm Amanda. I'm 24 and I have an almost 5 year old little boy. I am a single mom and LOVE it. I moved to the "big city" three years ago and really started to get into cooking while getting my feet on the ground. I've always loved cooking and was accepted into Johnson & Wales culinary school right out of high school but never went for some crazy reason. Cooking is a big passion of mine and while it might not be gourmet or always healthy for you or might not taste superb, its something that I know I can always improve on.
My cooking triumphs
Making meatballs from scratch and my Dad telling me they were better than my mom's. The first time I made country fried steak WITHOUT using the gravy-cheat packets. My son actually ate it and gave me the thumbs up.
My cooking tragedies
My first time attempting chicken marsala was awful!! It had such a terrible taste to it, maybe it had something to do with the type of marsala I bought but I haven't tried to make it since and that was 3 years ago =]
