Where to start?

I honestly hate the first post of a blog. I never know how to introduce myself, but I'll give it a shot!

The goal of my blog is to help other people like me. Before I got married I knew how to cook two things, tacos and spaghetti. Beyond that I was clueless. My husband, Jared, and I went out and stocked up on Ramen noodles and frozen chicken strips to prepare for my failure in the kitchen. But I'm here to say there is hope!

Jared is in the Marine Corps, so I had to move from St. Louis to our new home in California. We had nothing in our new house. We went on a huge shopping spree with our wedding gift cards to fill our kitchen with everything we thought we needed. Unfortunately we forgot several little things, like a can opener, peeler, cake pans and much more. So the first few meals were generally interrupted by me discovering that I didn't have most of the simple necessities to make whatever I had planned. I can't even count the number of times we had to go back to Bed Bath and Beyond!

My first meal I tried Fettuccine Alfredo, that's when I learned that 1lb of pasta was WAY too much for just two people to eat!

Anyways, I'm not claiming to be an expert in the kitchen, but I know it has been hard finding recipes for just two people and that are simple enough for a beginner. So that's why I'm making this blog! To share my love of cooking and to prove anyone can cook!
