Here we go…

I quickly realized how truely inept I was in the kitchen during my first semester of college.   Ramen noodles and easy mac do not a meal make.  A very good and dear friend took pity on me and did her duty to teach me the basics of the kitchen.  In fact, hurricane Katrina took my only proof of effort when she drowned the t-shirt made for me which displayed, “domesticated” along the front of it.

Since I married the man of my dreams late last year I have had an undying need to make an effort to grow in my culinary skill.  For Christmas this past year I even asked for a KitchenAid standing mixer.  Who woulda imagined that??

In an attempt to document my progress and adventures in the kitchen I have decided to record it all here.  Feel free to keep up with me as I attempt to cook food worth eating.  Here we go…

    Are you saying I took pity on you? Haha I love this so much. It makes me very happy to see you conquer your fear of the kitchen and discover how much fun cooking can be. I can’t wait until we can get together and make a smorgasbord.
