RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I grew up in Germany but my background is German/Spanish/Irish/Native American. I would say my cooking style is a mix of all of them. I like to cook simple clean food. I usually don't use any packaged or processed products. Most of the time I make everything from scratch. I use only organic meat and dairy products and many other organic products and I believe it makes a big difference not only healthwise but also in taste. We have two kids. A 3 year old and a 9 year old. I try not to adapt the food for them too much. They are used to eating what we eat. Growing up I didn't really learn how to cook. At least I didn't care enough to remember anything.But living centrally in Germany I was able to travel and eat European food in it's respective Countries: Italian food in Italy, Spanish food in Spain, French food in France and so on. I really missed that when I moved to the States. I started cooking the week after I got married and have been cooking and teaching myself ever since. Now cooking is not only one of my two hobbies (photography being the other one)but I also see it as therapy. It calms me down after a stressful day, it cheers me up when I feel down and it helps me center my thoughts when I have a lot on my mind. :) Thank you so much to whoever gave me the gift of premium membership. I really appreciate it :) <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/participantbannerzwt5.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/26630178@N05/3510953178/" title="banner3 by *sparkly*, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3387/3510953178_b35b3086a8.jpg" width="500" height="250" alt="banner3" /></a> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=http://i335.photobucket.com/albums/m445/mliss29/vegn%20swap/vegnswap.jpg> <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/NZT-2-AnnaciasZaarTagbanner.jpg" border="0" alt="Annacia's banner for Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg">
