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!

Hello! I'm Charmaine and I'm a new wifey. I don't love to cook as much as DH - I do like it. Hopefully, it will turn into something I love. Hoping you ladies will inspire me with your recipes!

Ashley LCBO book....is that similar to the one you can get at the Liquor store in BC. I love the magazine they have, has some great recipes in it!


Can't believe I haven't posted here:)


I'm Danica and up until I turned 23 I hated to cook....hated it with a passion. My mom always made dinner in our house. Then when I moved out my roommate was a chef, I cleaned she cooked life was bliss:) Then I turned 23 and lived on my own, had to learn to cook or I was going to starve. I now love to cook and try a new recipe every week!! MY DH loves it because he never has to cook and I've even discovered new foods that he likes!


I'm not much of a baker though. I try baking occasionally but not too often. 


I have far too many kitchen toys, more then my DH realizes:P

Hi there! My name is Fernanda and I love to cook! I always liked, since I was a kid. Today I don’t find much time to cook, because of work and school, so I try to find easy and fast recipes.


My DH and I are vegetarians, but we eat fish and shrimp, though. We also prefer healthy recipes, we don’t eat anything fried.


My favorite sites now are: http://allrecipes.com/ and http://smittenkitchen.com/ I love the last one!! She has lots of great vegetarians recipes

I'm a wifey to be who loves to cook but that was not always the case. I use to look at cooking as a chore and avoid it at all costs. In the past 4 years I have come to enjoy it very much especially trying new recipes. I have also become addicted to the food network. If I had the time I would love to take cooking classes just for fun!

Not a wifey just yet (4 months to go!) but I love to cook and bake. I'm lousy at following recipes though, I make everything up as I go along. I love to read food blogs and cookbooks though, for the inspiration. We eat pretty much everything. I'm Swedish and my FI is American, so we don't always like the same stuff.

new to the group...Melanie here....not yet a wifey


 


I've always loved cooking/baking and spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my dad growing up.  Right now FI and I focus on healthy meals that make for good leftovers.  Last night I made a greek salad with homemade dressing and greek marinated chicken and stuffed grape leaves(those we bought from the greek restaurant as a treat).  I also have a yummy recipe for mexican chopped salad with a cilantro lime dressing.


 


It's tough cooking healthy meals that don't taste like diet food so I hope to share some recipes and get some good ones in return.

Hi Ladies!  My name is Crystal and I've been a wifey for 3 weeks from today!!!  I'd say I'm an average cook and I also really love to bake.  Hubby cooks dinner here and there, but I probably cook more often than he does ;)


With our lives being so busy because of the wedding, we were eating out a ton.  But momma taught me better than that! lol She made home cooked meals every night and I want the same for my family.


I grew up on a ton of great Italian food, being that my grandma is Italian.  My mom is from Colombia so I love the latin flavors too.  Hubby's family is of German/Dutch heritage and holy moly can they make some tastey foods!  For my bridal shower, they gave me a family recipe cookbook from his grandma and his 5 aunts!!  Can't wait to branch out and try some new recipes from there!


Also we LOVE watching Top Chef.. though we missed last season because things were so hectic.  We watch Iron Chef America too and I just love Bobby Flay!


I'm really excited learn some new things from you all.. hopefully I can contribute too!!

Hi everyone!


My name is Vivian and I love to cook and bake. Both my FI and I are 100% Greek so we basically have grown up in the kitchen! My mom cooked dinner for us every night and we ate as a family. I want the same thing for my future kids!


I really love all things food-- making it and eating it. I'm obsessed with the Food Network and reading cookbooks. Recently, I've gotten really into organic products and going to the farmer's market.


My FI and I are moving in together after the holidays so I'll really be getting my cooking on. Right now, I live at home, so I cook dinner sometimes for FI and I and if my mom is busy/asks me to do it. I can't wait!

Hi guys!


I can't cook to save my life...... :( but I have vowed since we have gotten married and set-up our kitchen with new plates, gadgets and machines that I learn how to! lol I am an AMAZING baker.... hehehe but for some reason people say I can't live on just cookies!! ;)


The funny thing is that I truly LOVE food and love different varieties, tastes, cultural fusions everything... but I am clueless in the kitchen!


I've recently discovered the crock-pot and I'm on a roll.... I think! lol So I need all the help I can get from you all!!

I am a wifey and a cook for many years!! I love love love to cook and to bake! My DH is also a fabulous cook. Most of our meals are home cooked and although most of it is Indian, I adore making Italian, Greek and Chinese foods as well.


I was addicted to Foodnetwork while I was at USA; really liked all of Giada De Laurentiis, Tyler Florence and Ellie Krieger shows. I think I am in love with the mad scientist in the kitchen Alton Brown. ;-)

I am not yet a wifey, but I am a fiancee! Can't wait to be a wifey! I already cook a ton! We love to cook a meal together and have a bottle of wine or a few beers. Nothing beats it! 


We also garden! We love to use fresh herbs like basil, rosemary, cilantro, parsley, stevia, and fig! Yes! We have a fig tree on our apartment balcony :]

I'm a fiance, but we've been living together for the past 4 months, so I count! Hehe =]


I was never much of a cook. Despite being freakishly obsessed with watching the Food Network, I kept things pretty simple. Most night I'd get takeout or I'd making something stupidly easy, like a quesadilla, a salad, or a turkey burger. 


Instead of just weasling my way around Williams-Sonoma, I purchased 2 cookbooks and I'm slowly highlighting the recipes I want to try. I'd really love to start cooking dinner instead of relying on my takeout menus!

Since we are reviving this group as well, let's all get to know each other (the newbies to the group). 


I'm Becca and I am a wifey (just celebrated 2 years) and while I love to bake, I could really use some help with cooking!  One of the major barriers that I had while I was single was that I had to work so much that I never cooked just for myself.  I work at home and I really want to learn how to cook more.  : )
