I'm a wife and mom of 4; twin 17-year old daughters, a 11-year old son, and my 3-year old baby boy. My goal is to learn more about cooking with healthier foods and try new recipes! I have food allergies! Not just to a few things, but many things. The worst would be the soy and peanut allergies. I knew a lot things I was allergic to but recently found out about the soy allergies. Soy is in a lot of things and it has been a challenge to avoid it and haven't mastered it yet. It is about impossible to eat out without soy ingredients, so it's been quite the challenge for me. Otherwise, I have annoying food allergies to potatoes, carrots, celery, green beans, strawberries, watermelon, beans, and the list goes on... We love animals and at my small home we have a bunch of small animals: 2 dogs, 1 cat, 3 ferrets, 4 hamsters, 3 mice and 1 leopard gecko. My kids love it. I enjoy spending time with my family, attending events my kids are involved in, going to Christian concerts, church, listening to music, and again, I enjoy writing.
