I live in SE Minnesota and have three children. I am a Middle School Paraeducator. For fun, I love to cook, crochet, spend time with my kids and read. My favorite cookbook would have to be the one that my grandmother started with her mother the year my grandmother became engaged to my grandfather. There are recipes in it that originated with our family in Norway. My one biggest passion would have to be my kids and family!! My biggest pet peeve has got to be procrastination!! Drives me nuts! Do it and be done with it!
