Youth pastor's wife living in the Southern part of the United States. I love to cook, but because of our work schedules I am constantly looking for and experimenting with freeze ahead, crock pot, and 30min or less ideas. My favorite thing to do is baking...especially cookies and cakes. Not a specific favorite cookbook...but I use old church cookbooks mostly because they're dependable and typically the recipies in them are economical. I do enjoy the Kraft Food magazine for it's simple but flexable recipies. Pet peeves? People who don't read the recipie lol. I may not measure everything...but I atleast think I ought to know what goes in it.
