I love my family, classical piano, liturgical music, homeschooling, and cooking. I love to share the kitchen with my kids. There's little else more satisfying than hearing, "Mom, can you make that again?" My favorite cookbooks include Beth Hensperger's The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook, books by Cook's Illustrated, and Taste of Home. After making bread in my Kitchen Aid mixer for 17 years, I got a bread machine, and I never thought I'd enjoy it so much! I have a picky eater, so it's a challenge to come up with dinners we will all eat. Sometimes I do give in and let the picky one have a hamburger while the rest of us try something unusual.
