I live in West Michigan with my husband and three kids. I love to try new foods, and my husband loves to be my guinea pig. :) My kids are learning to be less picky, and we've finally put the rule on the table that the food on their plate isn't going to kill them, so they still have to eat it. They may not like it, but they're still going to make an attempt at eating it. I'm starting to hear less grumbling from them now with that rule, so something must be working. I'm a stay at home mom, and I volunteer at the kids school and also at our church. I fill my time while they're in school with running (trying to keep up with my marathon runner of a husband!), cleaning, cooking, and crafts. When people ask me to bring something to a pot luck or fund raiser... it's usually a hit thanks to the recipes I've found on here. That's why I always pass along this website... it's too good not to share!
