I'm a married mother of two, and one step-son. I'm an employee of Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. That was a dream come true. I don't have a lot of time for fun with a full time career and a family to take care of. Books are my get away. My favorite cookbook is the Betty Crocker cookbook my mother used when I was growing up. It has changed in recent years. My passion is the care of children. If I could make a living rocking children who had no one to care for them, I'd be in Heaven. My husband will tell you I have many pet peeves. One high on my list is people who don't know how to drive. Can't stand it. I'm trying to become a better home maker. Cooking is the first step. My husband and children deserve it.
