I just started cooking and baking on my own after years and years of watching my mother make some of the best homemade meals ever. I'm interested in clean, healthy, organic, raw eating but at the same time I'm very content with the comfort foods!!! I have a three herb garden so basil and parsley go into everything I make...mint for most the desserts and drinks. I can't wait to have a "real" garden of my very own. The crock pot has become my favorite way to make dinners, and baking and grilling for everything that doesn't work in the pot.
