{Foodie Favorites}

food·ie  (fōō'dē)  
n. Slang
A person who has an ardent or refined interest in food; a gourmet.
I've always considered myself somewhat of a "Foodie."   However, I'm in no way, shape or form, a gourmet.  Heck, I just started really cooking within the last year.  I've always enjoyed baking.  Whenever I was stressed out, nervous or just needed to have some down time and relax I would whip up some of my favorite baked goods.  And I have to admit, I'm a pretty good recipe follower!  Naturally, I adjust them to my specific tastes.  Bakes will tell you that you can't stray from a recipe because you can ruin it.  Well, you can't "guess" on measurements of the key ingredients.  That will cause your baked bliss to anything but.  You can play with seasonings, extracts, and additions like nuts, candy, fruit etc.  I've switched up my share of baking recipes some turned out great, others not so much.  
Now that I've really started cooking, I am finding that I really enjoy it.  I think even moreso than baking! (gasp!)  Impossible, right?  Nope.  I have some super scrumptious family recipes that are too good not to share with my interwebs friends!  I've also found some great recipies that are scrumptious as is and those that I've "doctored" up to my family's liking.  So here is where I am going to share my favorite recipes for meals, snacks, and of course baked stuff!
