Yummy Secret

So I thought I would share a little secret. Cooking is fun. Shhhh, don't tell anyone, you might ruin the surprise.....
Now if you are Leah and have known me since, well, forever, you'll know exactly how far I have come. Really. I could burn water back in high school. My parents don't really cook. They have both worked long hours as long as I can remember. Every once in a blue moon my mom pulls out a recipe that blows my socks off, but that isn't very often.
However, lately I have liked cooking. In fact I have cooked more meals the last month than.... well, ever before. I have been trying new things too. Remember back when we were doing the recipe wars??? I never did vote in most of them, because I never made most of them. I found myself searching through them today for this one.... and now they actually all look really good. I may just have to try a few of them now. I will have to double a few of them though cause I have started really liking the idea of batch cooking. If I knew other families in the area who wanted to, I would batch cook with them just like Kimberly over at Raising Olives. Maybe we'll have to start Recipe Wars up again..... Nah, that will not work. Too many allergies, busy mom lives, and stuff. Unless of course you gals insist.....

I gotta say, Johanna you had some great recipes.... I really think it is kinda sad that you can't use most of them any more....

I know, isn't that so sad. I just made the recipe she put up for loaded baked potato soup and it's DELICIOUS and...she can't make it for her family anymore. WWWHHHAAAAAA. That makes me want to cry.

Yeah, I'm not sure I'm up for recipe wars. Maybe after the baby is born. Things are starting to calm down here but it seems like as soon as it calms down something happens to mess things up.

I'm glad you're beginning to like cooking. It took me a while, too.

Yeah, cooking did take a while to grow on me as well. I used to really prefer baking, but now I love cooking. Easier to play around with the recipes!
