Welcome to our beginning! The journey begins, and we are so thrilled to start documenting our new endeavors in making tasty dishes in the kitchen. This has been a very big year for us and we are looking forward to making it even more memorable through creating courageous meals and big, delicious messes!
Dan and I are a newlywed couple who are learning to love to cook together. He comes from a big Italian family and is pretty comfortable in the kitchen. Some of our first dates involved him making me Chicken Parmesan, Baked Ziti and homemade burgers. I on the other hand have made many a cooking disaster, and am learning to become less reluctant when making any kind of dish. With several date nights involving me being his “sous chef,” I have slowly gained confidence in making mini, edible masterpieces.
Just months into our marriage, we dreamed up ways we could spend more time together amidst our busy day jobs. Cooking more was a simple and obvious idea that seemed like an exciting way to end each day. This small idea quickly evolved into deciding to document both our adventures and our inevitable misadventures. Given that eating dinner is a necessity, we knew that adding more recipes and cooking challenges into our lives, would fit easily into our hectic schedules. Since we have to eat, we decided that eating well (and of course, deliciously) would be the best way to bring us together each night after work. Our relationship began almost ten years ago in the kitchen, and this sweet beginning inspired us to carry on our love for cooking in our new marriage.
Follow us as we learn to strengthen our cooking skills, our relationship, and our confidence in the kitchen. Through this courageous and tasty ride, we hope to not only learn how to use the amazing gadgets from our wedding registry, but also to become daring chefs in our own home. Our ultimate goal is to become comfortable and sometimes incredibly bold in the kitchen, and to have extraordinary meals in the process. We believe in the power of delicious food and enjoying it with fantastic company. We hope that this blog will improve our overall cooking competence, and of course, our everyday happiness! Join as we discover how to improve our aptitude in the kitchen. From a simple grilled cheese, to a complicated risotto, we hope you enjoy our new explorations!
