Dear Nistas and Nisters,
It’s been one year since my husband, Ed, and I got married and what a wonderful year it’s been! I wanted to take some time to say thank you to each and every one of you. Thank you for constantly being my source of inspiration and my driving force behind everything temp-tations stands for. You all are like a family to me and family has always been extremely important; it’s one of the main reasons I designed temp-tations. Spending less time in the kitchen means you’re able to spend more time with your loved ones, and in the end, that’s the most important part of life!
Growing up, I remember learning and loving to cook from watching my mom! She is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen, but clumsy, boring bakeware would slow her down and force her to use more dishes than she needed to. It’s important to have a streamlined process especially when trying to bake or cook a large amount of food for a family event. Temp-tations are perfect for this because you can prep, cook, serve and store all in the same dish!
Here a few of my fave family recipes that I want to share with you. These recipes all work amazingly well in large batches and are sure to stun at your next family wedding, shower, or dinner party. Please share pictures on my Facebook page or tag me on Instagram @taratemptations! I love seeing all of your creations.
