I am a Married Mom with two young boys and a step-daughter as well. I love to cook for my family! Sometimes when the kids are all running around and I want to go crazy, I just go into the kitchen as de-stress by cooking and that's my way of relaxing! I live in a really small mill town in Northern Maine, not much to do here, we have about 7-8 months of cold winter so being indoors a lot my whole life is probably where I discovered my passion for cooking. I've been cooking with my mom, grandmother, and aunts since I can remember, I even still have my first cook book ever bought for me that I got when I was nine years old. I love cooking just about anything, sometimes my husband doesn't appreciate my experiments, but I always tell him, "I'll never learn if I don't try new things!" My famous dish around here is my chicken stew and ployes, ployes are a famous food around here known for their acadian heritage, and we LOVE them! A lot of my cooking at french cooking, and my husband not being from around here has adapted well to our "different" ways of cooking.
