I live in Northwest Washington. I am a mom of 2 boys, ages 15 and 17. I am 30 something, and my Hubby and I have been married over 18 years. All through high school I worked in a gourmet restaurant. In 4 years I worked my way up from dishy/prep cook to line cook, and even head baker and dessert cook while I was there. I learned many wonderful and useful skills while at that job. I have always enjoyed cooking and baking, but my love for cooking and baking really took off from there. I spent 3 years as a Pampered Chef Consultant to learn great recipes and stock my kitchen.
