I cook, bake, and party plan… a LOT! Sometimes I cook too much food for people (which I think comes from being raised in the South), sometimes I over plan and make too many lists to make sure everything is perfect, but I’m the type of person who would like to make sure I have all my bases covered well before an event to make sure it goes off without a hitch so that everyone else thinks it looks so easy. Little do they know….
I try my best to cook during the week, although with a full-time job and a 40+ minute commute everyday sometimes that’s hard. I did go to culinary school about 6 years ago, but I don’t currently work in the industry at all. I only cook for friends and family now.
My boyfriend K and my two kitties M & S make me very happy. The kitties are currently laying in the sun in front of our windows. K and I have been together for about a year and he is always more than happy to taste test anything that I cook. Although, he does have this extreme dislike, alright, let’s be honest, he HATES mushrooms which just hurts me because I have a strong LOVE for the same food and so, he either picks them out of a dish or I don’t cook with them….but I guess if that’s our biggest problem in the kitchen then we are doing ok. He’s definitely helpful when I need him to be, and always willing to jump in and pull a pan out of the oven or microwave some candy melts.
This blog might take a few different turns….I don’t have a fancy camera, so I can’t take any super cool pictures of the food I make. I will take regular pictures and cross my fingers that they come out ok. I will probably talk about the craziness that is my life right now. My boyfriend, my kittie cats, my crazy family and K’s family who always makes me feel like I’m one of them. It’s football season now, so there will be talk of LSU and the Saints . I will do my best to keep this updated as much as possible and I hope you will join me and enjoy the journey with me.
