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!

Okey dokey!!

I'm Nicki, I won't be a wifey until 19th July, but I am a mommy to two lovely 4yr old boys.

I was always quite a lazy cook but once we decided to have babies I started paying more attention to what I was eating and slowly became better & better.
I love new recipes, but struggle to follow the rules so they always tend to more of a 'guideline' and then I forget what I did differently and can never recreate it again!! Lol
My favourite foods are Mexican & Spanish, FI loves my tapas but I only make it for special occasions to keep him interested! I really want to make sushi, I've got a book that tells me how to do all the different types but I've never got round to it yet.

I am not great at baking, I make a mean chocolate-chip cookie and have recently managed a fab carrot cake and cheesecake but that's the limit of my skills (unless it's a packet mix!).

I love decorating cakes, and luckily my sister bakes well so between the two of us we've done some successful birthdays!!

I'm Christina and I've been a wifey for almost 8 months.  I've always enjoyed cooking, and since I got married, I've branched out a bit in my cooking.  DH and I subscribe to Emeals, and it's been a lifesaver for us--it's so nice to have an easy, quick dinner menu all planned out for us, and it's allowed us to branch out and try new things in the cooking realm.  So far, I've received rave reviews for my bacon-wrapped meatloaf, shepherd's pie, overnight Mexican roast, cream of potato soup with bacon and leeks, and a caprese pasta salad.


I do enjoy some baking, though I haven't done a ton of it.  Aside from box mixes, I've baked herb bread, banana nut bread, pumpkin bread with cream cheese frosting, snickerdoodles with a kick, and I've had a request to make some cherry nut cookies this year for Christmas.

Hi ladies! I just joined :)


I'm Steph and have been a wifey just over 1 1/2 years, as well as being mommy to 7 month old Megan. I've only started cooking really (DH is the cook) so you ladies will be my inspiration! I like to bake, but usually only do so around Christmas so I'm excited to be here and discover lots of new recipes :)
