My Birthday/Valentine’s Day

My Birthday/Valentine’s Day

So today is my birthday!!! Yes, it is Valentine’s Day!!! In honor of my birthday, I thought I would share 6 food-related facts about me as well, 10 things I love to cook, and 12 of my favorite foods. If you can do math, you will notice the sum of all the items just might equate to my age 😉

Food Facts

  1. I began learning to cook at age 12 from a close family friend, Mrs. Teresa.
  2. I am a messy cook, usually not cleaning up as I go. This is partially why my mother recruited Mrs. Teresa. To me, a messy kitchen is a creative kitchen 🙂
  3. I have never had a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich. Bleck and pooey!!!
  4. I will NOT have milk in my cereal. Never. Ever. Bleck and pooey times two!!!
  5. I received my first Kitchen Aid in college as a Christmas gift. I absolutely love it and will cherish it always.
  6. I have this AMAZING cake recipe that I’ve been making since I was a freshmen in high school. It’s no ordinary cake recipe. You bake ice cream INTO the cake. Crazy!! I am going to be working on a gluten free/vegan version of this recipe. We will see what happens 😉

I Love to Make…

  1. Enchiladas
  2. Stir Fry Dishes
  3. Breakfast Casseroles
  4. Anything in the crockpot!!
  5. Cakes
  6. Cornbread Dressing for Thanksgiving
  7. Broccoli Rice Casserole
  8. Hashbrown Casserole
  9. Smoothies
  10. A nice cup of tea 🙂

I Like to Eat:

  1. Chips and Guacamole/ Salsa
  2. Hummus and Pretzels
  3. Larabars
  4. Fruit/dried fruit/fruit snacks
