Tis the season was in the air and I’ll admit that I felt like a big ole Scrooge this year. I always tell people that Christmas is my favorite holiday but in all honesty, I always seem to get in a big funk this time of year. I have very fond memories as a child and even when times were tough I… MORE

About Me
Hello, my name is Nicole. I am 40 years old, have been married to my wonderful high school sweetheart for 15 years now. We don't have (or ever wanted) any children but we do live on 8 acres and have 3 dogs, a cat, 11 hens, 1 rooster, and a ton of deer that come down and feed that think they are part of the family too. I have to be honest and say that I do not LOVE cooking but I do cook every night and love browsing this site for new and interesting things. I have an acre pond and absolutely love fishing and that is where I spend most of my time in the summer. There is nothing like sipping on a cold Corona while waiting for a nice 8 pound catfish to grab your bait. When not fishing I'm typically in my garden, flowerbeds, or riding my dirtbike.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, Mexican, Italian, Asian, and grilling
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't really have any so I have started my own. Allrecipes has taught me to "think outside the box". I love trying new and unusual things that I would have never dared or even thought of before discovering this place.
My cooking triumphs
When I got married, I honestly had 0% experinece in the kitchen. My mom was the kind that wanted the whole kitchen to herself so that nobody was in her way and I was only allowed in there to grab the plates, utensils, etc. to set the table. I really never thought about what I was going to cook until we got back from our honeymoon and then I was like, "uh oh!". Amazingly enough it all came pretty natural and I am happy to say that I have never ruined a meal forcing us to order take-out.
My cooking tragedies
GRAVY! I cannot make a decent gravy for the life of me so I've just given up altogether.
