I Was Born To Cook!


It’s not a secret – I love to cook.  It doesn’t matter what- I will try it!  I’m always adding new dinners to the rotation, trying a different dessert and I’m always hunting for a different bread recipe. I follow food blogs (Mel’s Kitchen Cafe, Our Best Bites) and my food boards on Pinterest get the most pins.  I enjoy it.  Cleaning up after making dinner?  That’s the chore.  When Matt’s mom set up a cooking class, I was so excited!  Matt’s in sunny ol’ Florida on a business trip?  I’m still going to make it work.  I think my older kids sweated bullets because they’d never actually put Megan to bed before.  (They just had to play with her for a half hour before putting her in her crib).  I think I was sweating bullets!  They did very well, and I had a great night out!


We each had our own work station/sink/pans/prepared ingredients!

Leslie and I, displaying our stuffed chicken- and we both stuffed that chicken FULL of goat cheese!  We also tackled steamed lemon pudding, roasted vegetables and fingerling potatoes.  We also enjoyed a huge salad and raspberry mousse. A fun evening with some of my favorite people!
