An Introduction

Good evening everybody! I am new to Blogger, so I thought I would share a little about myself.
I am a brand new wife to a wonderful man. We've been married for one month and one day. I love, love, love being married.
Waking up next to the man I love.
Falling asleep while hearing his gentle breath.
Knowing that whatever happens, we have each other.
Taking care of him in whatever ways I can.
Doing my best to love him with the sacrificial love we are commanded to give.

We have a crazy dog, Grady. He doesn't quite know how to behave like a respectable dog. But, our lives would be boring without him.

Although I have never really had to cook before getting married, I have found it an enjoyable learning experience. Sitting down and planning a menu for the week ahead, going to the grocery store, and trying new things in the kitchen are all new to me. My mother-in-law told me before the wedding that if I liked good food, I would become a good cook. I do like good food, but I don't know when the good cook part is going to kick in.

The first time I tried making roasted potatoes...
I sliced the potatoes way too thin, put them in way too much oil, had the oven on too high, and left them in way too long. They were seriously potato chips by the time I took them out. My loving husband ate them though, and claimed that he liked them. I have since learned from those mistakes!

I do love to bake, and I feel like I am a bit more accomplished in this area. Cakes, cookies, muffins, decadent desserts, I love them all! I want this blog to be a place where I can share my favorite recipes, and just tell funny kitchen stories.

With that said, I'm off to make grilled cheese with tomato soup for dinner tonight! It just sounded so good on such a rainy day.
