I am a wife and mother of three in Nacogdoches, Texas. My love for cooking came from my grandmother, who was a fantastic cook. Unfortunately, there isn't much time for making elaborate meals in my house. My job with the local newspaper takes up a lot of time. So, often I would rather cook a quick meal and spend the free time I have with the kids. On the weekends, though, we usually go all out and make special dishes.
