I recently married my soulmate (September 26). I am so blessed and grateful to have him! I am so excited about starting this new chapter in our lives together as husbdand & wife!
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new things! I am always on AR looking up a new recipe. I don't really have anything specific that would be my favorite to cook. It makes me happy anytime my husband tells me that "this is my new favorite!." Or if we are trying to decide on what to have for dinner and he will ask me if I have the right ingredients to make him something I have made him before that he really likes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My SIL is the most amazing cook I have ever met! She can cook anything! Ever since we have first met each other we have been getting together on each holiday, birthday, sporting event (or any excuse to get together ;) and cooking something up! Also my MIL makes my most favorite food ever-- Vegetable Beef Soup and cornbread she makes with cheese.. Everytime she makes it she always sends us a big bowl! And this past summer my husbands grandmother & my SIL canned some different things that I hope we can do again next year! I am very fortunate to have really great inlaws! ;)
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made pizza dough from scratch! It turned out so great and I was so proud of myself!
My cooking tragedies
One time when I was visiting my uncle he had a recipe for carrot cake and he wanted me to help him make it. This was back when I was 13 or 14 years old. I followed the recipe and the result was the most beautiful carrot cake you have ever seen(home made icing too)! It smelled so delicious but when my uncle took the first bite, then asked me how much baking powder I used I realized it was a disaster. It was so funny but sad making that beautiful cake that smelled so good but tasted so bad! Unfortunately baking is just not my thing!
