I am the happy/frazzled mom of seven great kids. Cooking fast, practical and large quantities is my game. I love to eat, and my favorite part of being the family chef is making what I am in the mood for at the moment. My kitchen hero is Alison Holst (Aus/NZ fame) who has a right-with-you voice in her books. My right-hand cookbook is the Make a Mix cookbook. I also like sewing, rubber stamping and reading. I hate doing dishes (of course).
