Baker Betty...



When i first met my partner/man/love of my life i may have told a rather small white lie about being quite a good cook...don't judge me just yet!! of course i was filling his mind with visions of me in an apron cooking him wholesome meals and baking triple layer cakes. Being European he loves his food...and since we have been together i have put on a few or more kilos...and as we are almost at the one year mark (tadaaaa!!!) i think he may have...sort of..maybe clued on im not exactly that talented at cooking.

Although in my mind i think im rather good, i can make a mean Megoran noodles, and a batch of vanilla cupcakes usually works out in an edible state so i didn't think my white lie was totally untrue...until this past weekend when i cooked a whole fish for him and his family....which was still...semi raw!

So hopefully this year...since we just bought our first house!!!!!! yippeee!!! which i am kinda over the moon about!!! i cant wait to share pictures and decorating ideas when we move in in February, Ill become a little more Martha Stewart...and learn to cook food thoroughly....fingers crossed!

Congratulations Ally! My partner/love of my life and I are currently in the process of trying to buy our first home. I cannot believe how stressful it is! I will feel the need for an entire batch of vanilla cupcakes once it is all over!

Well if you look that good cooking, I think he can overlook the quality of the food a little bit :)

You look adorable! I enjoyed your cooking story haha, I am not the best in the kitchen either, but since "eat more whole foods and less microwaved meals" is number on my NY resolution list, I should probably work on that! In my defense, my mom always asked if we would like our meals "burnt" or "raw" growing up, so maybe it genetic!
