I am married with 3 sons and two spoiled female dogs. My mother worked as a cook her entire life. I learned as a child, standing on a chair next to her trying to take in each detail of what she was doing and anticipating the outcome. I have worked as a cook for the schools and now I volunteer for our youth and children's camps as a cook in the Summer. These days, I look for healthier recipes for my family and nothing too fancy.
