Hello everyone!  
Welcome to my new FOOD blog!

This blog was suggested and inspired by my mother-in -law.  It feels great to have someone have faith in your ability and I appreciate and love her very much!  
Mary, super cool mother-in-law *for the record I actually MEAN that*

If you read my profile, you will understand what this blog is going to be about.  Its been a food journey of sorts.  I grew up as the youngest of 10 children.  I OBVIOUSLY never had to cook for myself.  (or do anything else if you ask my 9 older siblings) teehee   I truly love cooking, its stress relieving and therapeutic and simply enjoyable.  

My only real problem with cooking is that I find it difficult to follow recipes, and tweak them all to MY liking and when I make up my own dishes, I rarely pay a lick of attention to how much of anything I have added.  When I share recipes and photos, please, please accept and love that you will need to follow them with a "grain of salt".  I will work on it, I promise!  

I will be including my family and my friends in this blog..  I enjoy cooking with people I love.  I will share photos, and I will even have the guts to share kitchen mishaps.  I have a friend who will likely announce that one time, in my precooking days, I added baking soda instead of cornstarch to thicken the sauce of a Chinese food dish.  There Kris, I already let it out!  

Please never hesitate to ask questions, share tips, share recipes, or suggest recipes you would like me to try.  Share your mishaps, I wont laugh, I promise.  Ok lets be serious, I am going to laugh but you won't know since I am behind my computer.   I will give pointers to beginners, as well as share tried and true tips with more advanced cooks.  I like any funny stories in general so share share SHARE!

Please pass my blog on to friends or family or anyone who loves to cook or would love to learn to cook. 

I look forward to meeting new friends and cooking great food!

Your own chefwannabe,
