I am a part time Preschool Director and mother of 2 wonderful children. I enjoy trying new recipes and recently have discovered cooking in the crock pot (what a time saver and great food to boot!) My husband is enjoying this as he loves traditional homestyle cooking. (I had never made a pot roast in our 13 years of marriage until 2 weeks ago!) I still, however, prefer cooking "non-traditional" meals. I am a creative type who likes to experiment with recipes, adding and deleting ingredients to see what will become of it!
