I love food, but am generally uncomfortable in the kitchen. I am happy to shop, chop, prep, and measure ingredients, but tense up when it comes time to add heat and attempt to time a meal. In contrast, I am fearless when it comes to baking. I can often be found making cookies, breads, cakes, scones and muffins on the weekend. You won't find any boxed desserts or cake mixes in my pantry! With two young children and a husband (who is a fearless chef), I'm venturing out and trying my hand at cooking. I hope to gain some solid recipes from the recipezaar community that utilize fresh ingredients and are simple to prepare for my whole family to enjoy.
