I live in a beautiful Burnaby, British columbia, just outside of Vancouver. I'm a stay-at-home mom and scrapbooking consultant. My favourite cookbook is without a doubt Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, I've never made anything bad from that book, so I highly recommend it to anyone. My passions are my family, my home, my culture, and my faith. My pet peeve is when cooking becomes a chore, feeding a family day in and out can make me feel that way sometimes, but generally I like to cook, well, I love food!
