Tell us all about it!

I'll start the intros = )


My name is Jessica and now that my wedding is over I have decided that I want to become a better cook. I especially am interested in baking/desserts. I am a beginner here so I'll take any advice you gals have! I hope we can share our favorite recipes and cheer each other on!


Edit to add: also, if you watch the foodnetwork (which I am becoming hopelessly addicted to!) you can share your favorite stars/shows. I love Paula Dean and Bobby Flay!

Hi ladies!! I used to cook a TON, not so much in recent years... I've been getting back into it now that we're married though. I prefer to cook during the winter, I let DH do a lot of grilling during the summer. I'm excited about getting recipes from all of you! :)

Hello!  I'm Wendy!  I just got married in June and I like to cook but I don't have a lot of time.  I like easy, cheap, and healthy recipes.  We pretty much eat the same things every day so I'm looking to add a little variety! :)

Hi everyone!  My name is Jessi, and Im a kitchen addict. 


My love for the kitchen started at a very young age - my mom taught my sisters and I how to cook ever since we were kids.  My moms old fashioned in the sense that she doesn't cook anything from a box (I didnt know mashed potatoes came in a box until college), always had fresh fruit and veggies, and made dinner EVERY night.  By the time I was 11, my little sisters and I could cook an entire Thanksgiving feast by ourselves.


as i got older, my tastes refined and I cook much differently than my mom does.  My MIL asked my mom where i got my food style, and my mom told her that she has no idea! 


anyhow, im always throwing dinner parties and such, and Im a shutter bug and take TONS of pictures!

Hi ladies I am a wifey to be as well and I LOVE to cook.  Everyone compliments me all the time on my meals although I think I have a LOT to learn.  I love to bake and that is one thing I feel most comfortable with.  I also make a delicious salsa, if I do say so myself =) and I plan on canning it for a wedding favor!  Looking forward to picking up some tips and getting some great recipes from you ladies!

HI Ladies, my intro is late, but im jess! bascially, i was forced to fend for myself as a kid, and got tires of making hot pockets and mac n cheese, so I started cooking very young. I have an unusually good sense of tastes, and love to eat

Hi! I'm Kim and I love to cook and bake! BF's other lover is his grill... I was raised 1/2 Japanese so I know how to make all the delish authentic foods! I live in SoCal so I also use a lot of Hawaiian recipes! My current fave blog is joythebaker.com I seriously love every recipe she posts! Let's do recipe swaps!

Hello! I'm Gina,


I love cooking, but I have trouble finding things that I want to make again.  I also have an awful habit of defaulting to pasta!  Anyway, I am moving back home before the wedding and my mom and I are going to do a Julie & Julia (the movie) inspired month.  We are going to pick a (healthy!) cookbook and cook our way through the recipes.  Hopefully I will pick up some tips from all you wonderful ladies as well as share some of my (fingers crossed**) successful recipes!

Hi, I'm Beth...


When I was younger it was always my job to get dinner started after school - so I know enough so that (when we're married) we won't starve.


I don't mind cooking, it's washing everything afterwards that I hate.


I like most everything, but don't eat fish or seafood, (other than canned tuna and frozen fish sticks). I hate fresh tomatoes, and broccoli is my favorite veggie.

Hi!  My name is Deborah, and I'm a food-a-holic!  


I love to cook and I love to eat out too!  I'm a very picky eater, and yet I love to try new things.  I have a shelf of cookbooks, a binder full of magazine recipes and scraps of paper everywhere (in the car, all over the house) of recipes I get in random places (on the radio, from friends).  


I'm very excited to see what you guys have to bring to the table.

My name is candice, I'm a self proclaimed AWESOME cook. I enjoy baking more than cooking though really. I grew up in the kitchen with my grandmother and aunties, cooking is how I learned my fractions!


I could run my kitchen on nothing but whole foods, but unfortunately I'm not a full time house wife. (i promise, I'd love to be!) I look forward to sharing tips and recipes with all the other wifeys around here! Cheers!

I'm Bri....


 


I'm 31, a new wifey (as of September :-)   )  and I love to cook, but I hate to clean up the mess, lol.  I'll leave that to the maid...JK.


 


I do love trying new recipes and adapting them to suit my taste.  Usually (not always a triumph though...I've had some failures...) my adaptations are a good thing.

I never did this!  Oh wow.


I am Faith and have been a wifey for a month!  Loving it!  I love to cook and make awesome stuff but my problem is that when I get home from the gym I am lazy and kinda tired.  On the wknds, I can cook huge meals but it is a hassle when I get home during the week.  I am working on it b/c as crazy as it may sound I kinda feel bad sometimes when DH cooks for me and him during the week day.  I know it isn't just the "woman's" job to cook but in our house it seems that DH does all the cooking even though I am the better and more skilled cook, lol.  Last night, I finally made that tuna caserole and tonight I am going to do a baked chicken, baked corn on a cob and pasta.  So yeah, I am hoping to get new recipes to cook and a desire to want to cook on the week days.  I also don't want DH going to work with those disgusting microwave meals he eats.

I'm Ava. I recently moved into my new apartment/condo with my fiance. I'm trying to take full advantage of our wonderful kitchen! We both grew up in traditional Italian families, so food is big for us! I was basically raised in the kitchen. I love cooking and coming up with new takes on classic recipes. It's fun!

Can't believe I never posted in here!


*Waves* Hi everyone, I'm "kaytana17" and I'm not a wifey yet but I love to cook! I love making things from scratch..but rarely have the time to do so. I'm always on the look-out for healthy recipes (or semi-healthy) for FI and I as we're both trying to get in tip top shape! I think I love to cook even more b/c we moved into our brand new condo a few years ago..and we have a gorgeous kitchen - granite countertops, stainless steel appliances..*sigh*..I have to enjoy it while we have it b/c I know the next place we get won't have these things!
