I am a born and raised Central Jersey girl, which basically means no big hair or accent. I've enjoyed cooking since I was a kid, slowly learning through my father and both of my grandmothers. As I became a teen I cooked frequently for my parents. I am now happily married to a wonderful, helpful husband and mother to a beautiful baby girl (6 months old as of 7/09). I look forward to having another child in the coming years and cooking for my family as they grow. I tend to make a lot of classic dishes, but am trying to open up to new things, as well as healthier meals.
