I have been cooking up a storm since I became unemployed. And I'm loving every minute of it! I'm in my 40's and while I had been engaged a few times, I never married until almost 2 years ago. I was engaged at that time when I met my future husband at the local grocery store. Obviously I broke off the engagement to the other one. LOL. DH has 2 daughters aged 16 and 20 who I get along with wonderfully. They love to come over to play cards or Scrabble and of course, enjoy my cooking. DH was a little on the "skinny" side when I met him but has gain a little bit of weight since he started to eat my cooking. He's Italian and says I cook better Italian food than his mother. My MIL even said I cook better than her. She's diabetic so if I'm cooking for the family, I always keep her needs in mind. The dishes that gets the most "mmmm's" are my lasagna, salmon and my ultimate Triple Chocolate Cheesecake. So far, I've only had one cooking disaster. I had spiced some chicken breasts with bbq chicken seasoning in a bottle, not knowing that it was salty. After cooking it, there was no way I could eat it. My husband bravely ate it but he kept getting up in the middle of the night to drink fluids. LMAO. The next day I threw out the bottle of chicken seasoning. Recently I made jam for the first time. My father has a pear tree in the back yard and pear pie was getting a little boring so I made jam with it and it was wonderful. But I didn't stop there. I made peach, strawberry, blueberry, and a combination of peach/pear/mango which was wonderful. I had so much fun making the jam. Imagine...making jam was fun. Lately, a couple of friends have started calling me "Martha Stewart" since I used to be a "career woman" who didn't really do much that was domestic. I had no idea what I was missing. Other than cooking, I love to read. I read thrillers mostly. My favourite authors are James Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman, and John Sandford. However, my favourite book is The Notebook. It's truly a beautiful love story and over the years, I have given that book to several friends as gifts. Read it. You won't regret it.
