I live in Southern California and am a stay-at-home mom to a toddler and step-mom to teenager who are 14 years apart! I am a self-confessed foodie and am turning my toddler into one as well. We watch all manner of cooking shows (he will say "MMMMMMMM looks good!" while we watch!) I have Celiac Disease, casein-intolerance and multiple food allergies, so finding "friendly" foods is a challenge. I am passionate about cooking and baking, cake decorating and wine. My biggest pet peeve is bland food.
