What can I say? I am a mom to three wonderful kids, and married to my best friend. I love cooking and baking, and plan on sharing a lot of that with all of you.
When I first got married, I didn't know how to cook. At all. I could make mac and cheese (from a box) and boil hot dogs. That was it. Imagine my surprise the first time I had a hot dog baked in the oven, and realized how delicious it was. I haven't boiled a hot dog since.
I love trying new recipes, especially if I can cook the meal in one or two pots (or pans). I love simple, yet flavorful things. I hate fish, and love chicken. In fact, we eat chicken a lot around here. We have a few favorite recipes, like my bbq chicken with pineapples and my Parmesan chicken. I also make killer meatballs from scratch.
My girls, who are 12 and 8, also love to cook, and most of the time are begging to help me prepare meals.
I guess that's about it. Oh, I should probably mention that I love to eat, which shows on my waistline. It is my goal to find healthier ways of preparing the foods we love, while sticking to a budget. Sounds simple, right?
