Well! The vote is in! Turns out through email, facebook and my one comment on this blog (c'mon! leave your comments!) :) ---- Recipes are what you want right now! :)
Nicole asked me to post my favorite recipes! I like that idea! :) ... however... I have about a million of them! :)
Food! My mom (yes, I know .. my mom is amazing) - is an excellent cook. I'm pretty sure she can do anything she wants in the kitchen and turn anything into something gourmet. I remember when I first got married, I just felt like I was a good cook, it must've been in my blood, my sisters, mom, and grandma all had the "good cook gene"... ..
........... and then I had to ask my mother in law how to boil noodles. YES! Boil noodles! I guess it's just one of those things where I saw so many people cooking my whole life, I figured I knew how to do it too.... no no no no I didn't. I'm pretty sure I ruined just about every recipe, couldn't make mac and cheese and burnt pop tarts. .........BUT! I love good food. SO I was determined to figure it out- I started by finding recipes .. I'd think of what I wanted to eat, then look the recipes up in books and on the Internet. Then you practice.. :) - Do this enough, and then you feel like you can start tweaking things, combining different recipes, adding more or less of what you like to make them your own...I am no chef by any means, but I do have so many good recipes that I can't wait to share with you! :)
They won't be in any particular order.. because, well.. I"m just not organized like that! ha! :) Mainly I just can't make up my mind... they are all my favorite for different reasons! :)
