My name is Kara. I am 26 years old, and I live with my wonderful husband (we got married 7/14/09!!) and our 6 cats...I love cats, can you tell?! I love to bake and have as far back as I can remember...I have been the official "cookie maker" for my family. As I have gotten older, I have discovered that I enjoy cooking all types of food. I learn a lot about things that I like, as I am often more willing to try new things if I make them in my own kitchen and know everything that goes into them. I love cooking pasta dishes and finding new ways to prepare chicken. I also am a huge fan of crockpot cooking. I basically love to cook all different types of food...I try to not make the same thing two times in one month. I have learned a lot of my kitchen know-how from my mom, dad, and grandmother, who are all wonderful cooks. I don't really have a favorite restaurant. I really like a restaurant close to where my dad lives called Milner's. Also, around town, I really like Chop House, Rafferty's, Aubrey's, P.F. Changs, and Mellow Mushroom.
