Happily married mother of nine! Yes nine, although I only gave birth to six of them! There are currently five at home. I love to cook and my current challenges are to NOT cook for an army! I'm enjoying using more expensive ingredients as I don't have to stretch my food dollar so far anymore. I love to bake and challenge myself when my kids ask for special cakes for birthdays or when entertaining friends. I collect recipes and cookbooks, it's a disease!!
