All aboard!

I have decided to jump on board the “blogging train” and see just how interesting I can be…LOL…Anyway, I figured since I love cooking, I might try my hand at blogging about recipes I try.  The good, the bad, and the ugly.  My goal is to post recipes and where/who they’re from, plus, I will include pics and give my opinion on the difficulty of preparedness, how it tastes,  what “tweeking” or substitutions I made, and how likely I would be to try it again. I am not a chef by trade and I am not making any claims as to be a professional.  I just love to cook.  It is a hobby.  It is a passion.  I look forward to this new journey!  Ciao!


About thestubbiechef

I am married to the greatest man, Brad, who also happens to be the "bestest" friend ever! He loves that my hobby is food, because, well, he loves food! He encourages me and helps me out in the kitchen from time to time. Baking has become a new passion for me. It seems that I make pretty good pies. I like to make cookies as well. I tried my hand at cupcakes, but I don't have the patience to play the waiting game. I have always loved to cook. My Memom is my main influence. I had the pleasure of living with her on 2 separate occasions and learned a lot by just watching and helping. She was also the kind of cook who could open the pantry and throw together something pretty quick. I was so glad that I picked up on that skill. Some of my better meals have been the ones that I just "threw together" what I could scrounge up in the pantry and fridge. Italian cuisine is my first love, growing up in an Italian family and being from New Jersey. I also have dabbled a little in Asian cooking. I am getting pretty good at pork fried rice. My husband grew up in the south, for the most part, so I have been trying my hand at things like chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy, and the likes. Living in Texas has opened doors into Mexican cuisine, but I think I will leave the tortilla making to the experts. I love to get new recipes and to share new recipes that I have discovered. That is why I wanted to start this blog! I hope to share my experience with others who also love to cook! I hope that you enjoy what you read and keep coming back!
