I'm new, but love to cook!

Hey Everyone,
Just thought I would introduce myself since I look at this blog all the time--my name is Nellie and I got this site from Kristen. I have only been married 2 years and so have only been practicing the home-making skills for a short time (college doesn't really count for me--microwave cheese tortillas don't cut it anymore!) so I'm always up for tips and ways to improve my skills in the kitchen. I am 26, just barely, and have a 13 month old daughter and one the way in January. Closer than we planned, but whatever, we're happy! I love reading, sports and doing anything outside, especially in the cooler fall weather. I am also trying my hand at quilting/sewing. So far so good, but I'll keep you posted on that one. The recipe I'll share today is for marinated cucumbers, and it gives a great summer/fall kick to any meal. Enjoy!

Marinated Cucumbers
6 cucumbers (I use just however many people are eating, usually 2)
3/4 C white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. cold water
1/2 C sugar
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1Tbsp chopped dill

Mix and place sliced cucumbers in dressing. Chill. Serve.

Yeah Nell!!! I'm glad you made your first post!!! Welcome, welcome. Plus, I'm excited to try this recipe, we have a bunch of cumbers from our neighbors and I was trying to think of a different way to eat them that soaking them in ranch!
