I'm a mom of 3 great kids. I adore cooking, and experimenting. I love the reactions I get from my husband when something turns out perfectly. And I really love it when my daughter tries something new I've made and I get the yum sound. That will put an smile on anyone's face. I work full-time, so I like to find recipes that I can either put together quickly during the week, or make large amounts of on the weekend and will hold up in the fridge or freezer. I love Nigella Lawson's cookbooks, and the old standby's...Fanny Farmer, Joy of Cooking, BH&G. My passions are music, writing, and cooking.
