Oh Goodness, My First Post!!

So, I'm sure if you're reading this then you already know that this is my first blog. My goal here is to share my trials and tribulations in the kitchen, hoping that most of it turns out amazing. I'll also be sharing some of my favorite things in the kitchen, not always just recipes and how they are made. I love learning about other people's kitchens and the techniques and tools they use to cook with. Considering that I am brand-spanking-new to this who cooking thing, I'm very interested in others adventures as well.

Where did this all aspire from? Well, I'm a Nutrition and Dietetics major thriving to be a Registered Dietitian some day. Of course, I need to have some knowledge about food and food sciences so, I was encouraged to take a cooking class this past Fall. I fell in love. I learned the most simple things about cooking and baking and I wanted to try with all my might to make some delicious recipes of my own. I am far, FAR from learning how to create my own recipes but I am in a whole new world when I test out others recipes!

My two cooking inspirations are my mother and the Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. My mom has been cooking amazing, soulful food for me since... forever and I've always thought, "One day when I'm married I hope I can cook like her!" Then, I wondered what the heck I was thinking waiting for marriage to start testing my skills. So, at the ripe age of 22, I've finally decided to test my limits. My mom turned me on to an amazing blog,, where I was introduced to Ree Drummond. Not only is her food so fun to make but her hilarious posts and beautiful pictures inspire me even more. Now, don't go expecting her photography skills, wittiness, or scrumptious outcomes quite yet. I have LOTS to learn guys!

So, thanks for tuning in, and thanks to my mom and sister for all my new kitchen supplies so I can get started and show you all some (hopefully delicious) results!! Oh, and pray for Grant, my genuine pig :)
