Thanks for stopping by my blog. Here you will find a collection of some of my favorite recipes. I started this blog in November of 2009 because I wanted a fun project to work on in my spare time. I enjoy spending time in my kitchen trying out new recipes as well as making old favorites. Eric (my husband) and I frequently cook dinner together. One of our favorite ways to spend an evening at home is to have a glass of wine and cook a nice dinner together.
I like to make a variety of different foods, and my recipes range from simple and easy (like pizza or chocolate chip cookies) to time consuming and complicated (such as croissants or sugar cookies). I try to cook healthy dinners whenever possible, but I love pasta, carbs, and dessert too. Speaking of dessert, I love to bake! Some of my favorite things to bake are cupcakes & cakes, breads, sugar cookies, and pastries. There are so many new recipes I want to try, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
And here is a little background information about me — I was born and raised in CA, and have spent most of my life in Northern CA. I graduated from college in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. Besides cooking, baking, and blogging, I enjoy running, learning how to play golf, spending time with my husband, family & friends, trying new restaurants, wine tasting, traveling, photography, decorating, and reading (novels, cookbooks and magazines).
Where do my recipes come from?
I am always on the lookout for new recipes, and I find them in so many different places. I find most of my new recipes from the cooking magazines I subscribe to (my favorites are Cook’s Illustrated & Fine Cooking), my collection of cookbooks, the Food Network Channel on TV, recommendations from family & friends, cooking websites, and cooking blogs.
I love hearing from my readers. If you like what you see, please leave me a comment! (Better yet, subscribe to my blog. You can subscribe to my RSS feed or via email. You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! :)
