I am a child of God, a wife, and a mom. By career I am a Doctor of Chiropractic and a violinist on the side. I am a native of southern N.J. but have been living in S.C. for almost 21 years now. I have been cooking since age 5. My late mom was a junior high school home economics teacher (do they still teach that?) and those were some of the best years of my young life. I would stand on a chair and together we would make culinary magic and talk about any and everything. She died when I was 9 but my love for cooking has lived on. I am a health nut and cook mostly from scratch using as many organic foods as we can afford. I live in a beautiful country home with my husband and 2 year old son who both enjoy eating. My son is two and has never had junk food other than the occasional ice cream and baked goods which I make from scratch and sweeten with fruit, honey, or agave nectar. I love this site and am always trying out new recipes that I have found here. I have not posted any recipes yet since I don't really have definite measurements for my original recipes but I hope to one day quantify some of them and post them here.
