I'm a married mother of 3. I love to cook, and especially bake, but prefer to do it when someone else is watching the kids! That way I can concentrate on what I'm doing and try new exciting things. I'm big on presentation, so I love to cook for dinner parties, brunches etc. I also have a collection of china and dinnerware, some vintage (LuRay, and some depression glass) some new, some expensive, some very affordable. My husband ofen smirks when I lift up a plate in a restaurant to see what it is!
