Rachel Kelly

I am 24 years old. I live in a small town (I bought the house I grew up in) with my husband and son. Growing up my family didn't cook much as both my parents worked a lot. I was always trying to cook when I was a kid and it was always a disaster. My family still laughs at some of the things I did. When I was 18, I decided that I really wanted to try to learn how to cook, I guess because I couldn't stomach another frozen meal or Hamburger Helper. I began to teach myself mostly by just trying recipes and learning from my mistakes. Now, I'm quite well known for my cooking skills. Most specifically for my cookies and my Italian dishes such as stuffed shells. My family jokingly calls me Betty Sue, meaning Betty Crocker/Suzie Homemaker. Whenever I cook for the family (which is often) someone always says "Can you believe how good of a cook Rachel turned out to be? Remember when she was a kid . . ." Then we all have a good laugh as we share stories of my kitchen disasters from when I was young
