I am a young wife - 23 and have been married for a year and a half already. I grew up with a mom who is a perfectionist in the kitchen. She cooks very gourmet and a lot of variety. We always joke (though it's true) that if the family likes the recipe, we'll only have to wait a year to eat it again. I picked up a lot of tips from her, but didn't put them into practice until getting married and having someone to cook for. Now I enjoy finding new recipes and am constantly looking for new and exciting recipes.
