I'm a late bloomer, and didn't realize how much fun cooking from scatch could be. I didn't start really cooking until my 30's. DH and I used to eat out alot. We were married 8 years before the first tax deduction arrived. We named her Victoria (Tori) for short. Four and a half years later Tori's imaginary brother James became a reality. James Taylor (not the singer) came into being when I was 41. Let me say this ladies, things do not just snap back into place when you give birth at 41. But he has been a joy and he's the funniest kid I know. Well, back to cooking.
