I am a mom of 2 sons. One is 15 and the other 2. They have such different tastes in food,that I am always looking for something to please both of them. I love fast and easy recipes. My favorite cookbook is " The Quick and Easy Japanese Cookbook". It is an awesome cookbook. This authur "Katsuyo Kobayashi" was an iron chef winner. It has the least amount of ingredients and you can make great tasting meals. I'm half Japanese and German, so I love their country food. I'm not that creative so I have to cook by recipes. I love being outdoors with the kids and love to play online games on Pogo.com.
