What's cookin?

Well, I did it. I finally decided to start a cooking blog!

I never thought I would be the type of person who loved to cook. Or be any good at it. I HATED helping my mom make dinner when I was a kid. And anytime she tried to teach me something, I would get bored and go back to watching tv.

Fast forward to when I was living with my (ex)boyfriend in Florida. I cooked every once in a while, but we were living with his monster of a mother, and I worked late hours. So she usually cooked and everything was always done by the time I got home.

Then, my whole life changed on September 26th 2009. After a nasty break-up, moving into my own house, and meeting my now boyfriend (going on 1 year together! See my other blog to learn more about us!) I really started to get into the domestic role. I had my OWN kitchen that I could cook in anytime I wanted to. I really wanted to impress J, so I decided to cook him dinner one night. I made Riagtoni with homemade cheese sauce. He, my roomate Amanda, and our other friend Chris, all dug in and couldn't get enough! It was actually good!

11 months later, and I've gone from making a simple pasta dish, to cooking meals almost every night for J and I!

I'm also addicted to Facebook. So I update it....A lot. Probably more then the average person. So whenever I make a meal, I usually update about it. Well, a lot of people started commenting, asking for recipies, and how I do certain things. So, I decided, why not start a blog??? I can archive all my recipies and pictures of the meals I make. Sort of like a modern day recipie box, or cookbook.

So from time to time, I'll update this little thing with new meals, and exactly how to prepare it! Hope you enjoy!
