I'm married and a stay at home mom. My dad was a caterer, and loved to cook, making his own homemade Italian sausage several times a year. Our family has always been in the food business, and I have inherited his love of food and preparing it for my family and friends. I especially like preparing something outstanding for the kid's birthday dinners, and serving it up on the good china, crystal, candles, the works. They know that they can ask me to make anything for that night. I think it makes them feel very loved, and pampered. I enjoy doing different themed dinners for my family and friends, including adding special decor to the dining room to set the theme.
