I'm a single mom with 2 beautiful girls (ages 8 and 12). I just graduated from college and I'm looking for a job in the wastewater or drinking water treatment industry. We like to do a lot of outdoor activities like camping, swimming, and letterboxing and we spend a lot of time with my mom and one of my brothers. The girls and I have decided that after mom gets a job, (and pays off the student loans!) we are going to get a little boat because we all love to be out on the water! Meanwhile, we like to go down to the river on hot days and hang out. We are very lucky here because we can get to the coast or the mountains in about an hour and we love to do both. My favorite cookbook is the one I have here on Recipezaar and the girls love to be samplers when we try something new! My oldest daughter is learning how to cook more by herself and is having a good time picking out Zaar recipes she can make on her own.
