i'm a young mom who loves to cook for fun & to try new foods! my grandmother taught me to cook - she got me hooked with candy-making. my kids love to get in the kitchen with me, too. if there is any one thing i just can't stand it's someone saying they haven't had a 'home-cooked' meal in a long time. it breaks my heart! other things i like to do include crafting, card-making & scrapbooking.
