Busy mom to a teenager who has autism and Tourette's. I also have full custody of my granddaughter. My house is like a zoo, but it is fun and an organized zoo! I work full time, and have been with my Department for 19 years. Since January 2012 I have been on the South Beach diet and am now learning how to bake with whole wheat and sugar substitute. It has been an amazing journey!
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE making meatloaf and all kinds of chicken dishes. I am the "family" cook for get togethers so I usually search for something with good reviews and make things that everyone likes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My gram was from the south, so Southern and home-cooked comfort foods are my favorite! I use a lot of the things that my gram made but because of healthy eating habits, I have started to make my own cooking traditions.
