I've always known HOW to cook, but it was more out of necessity. In recent years, however, I've discovered how to enjoy the LOVE and pure enjoyment of cooking. It's now a big part of who I am, as corny as that may sound! It has also trickled down and become a joy and a real treat for my family as well... they love everything I make, and are my best critics. They enjoy eating what I make as much as I enjoy making it! My daughter loves the fact that I cook so well and she brags about it to all her friends, which is really cute. I have a long way to go before I can really call myself an accomplished cook (in fact, I don't know If I'll ever be able to call myself that! We'll see...). But my family sure has a lot of faith in me. Time will tell if I become what my family already believes I am. :o)
I love most everything, but I'm a bit of a picky eater just like my teenage daughter; although, I'll try anything and will try cooking it many different ways before I give up on it entirely. I love pasta, anything Italian, adore casseroles, and really love coming across lots of crock pot recipes that are easy, fun, but delicious! I grow my own herbs in the spring and summer and LOVE using fresh herbs in everything I make. Not only are herbs wonderful in flavoring food, but they can turn any dish into something so beautiful to see! And how beautiful they smell!!!
Favorite Restaurants: Newest favorite is Chipotle! I also really enjoy Olive Garden & Macaroni Grill.
But I honestly don't eat out much at all. I enjoy family meals at home most of all. When I do go out to restaurants, I love trying new things and taking note of how they may have made the dish and then trying it myself at home. That's a lot of fun!
