I'm a stay at home mom and wife. Earned BS in Hotel/Motel/Restaurant Management because I thought a restaurant career would be ideal! Before children, maybe. The hours were tough. Now, I enjoy being at home in the kitchen and love to try new recipes. My family is eager too and my husband is a fabulous cook. We are somewhat health conscious - following the food pyramid - but don't really subscribe to low-fat plans. I try to cook from scratch and prefer not to use canned foods, mixes or convenience items. Try to use whole grains vs. white bread, white rice, etc. I'm amazed at how often I use Todd Wilbur's cookbook, Top Secret Restaurant Recipes and the Marshall Fields Cookbook. But, Recipezaar is my primary source for recipes. We rarely eat out.
