This is so exciting...

ladies, (and maybe gents?) I am thrilled to be a part of this. i'm not engaged or married ...(oh how I have wedding fever though, seeing so many people I know get married and engaged) I'd like to contribute because I am also entering into the world of attempted cookery. My contributions may be the failure stories moreso than th esuceess stories...


last summer when I was looking for my job my mom and I used to cook together often, she is a great cook and has a lot ot teach me, although I am pretty terrible. My worst habit..I don't read the recipe through all the way. I usually read all the ingredients tomake sure I have them, but it comes out all wrong. I made this lemon pound cake, and I didn't reaad the recipe through first time around like mom says to. If I had, I would hvae known to mix in the oil BEFORE putting the batter into the greased pan. I was THIS close to putting it in the oven thinking, man, this batter is really thick...and then I looked on the counter and noticed the bottle of oil sitting there and I thought...why did I take that out, I didn't use it...SHOOT I DIDNT USE IT!! Oh boy, but I just dumped out the batter,added the oil and everything was fine after that.

I am excited to fiind new recipes to try :) so let the fun begin!
