I love to bless my family with good tasting, healthy food. I use allrecipes.com more often than not to look for new recipes. I'm a bit of an fanatic when it comes to this website because it's so easy to access when I need a recipe, quick. I work part time and enjoy the rest of my time staying home with my son, who's a toddler. I am very happily married to a wonderful husband and father who is a youth pastor.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to make things from scratch and I will always hunt for these types of recipes. We also live on a pretty small budget, so cooking this way really helps us stretch the dollar. All of the preservatives and additives and artificial ingredients also really motivate me to make it from scratch. All in all, I love the way things taste when made from scratch, so I try to make it standard practice in our home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom really didn't cook a lot, so when I got married I pretty much started my recipe collection from nothing. Two years prior to getting married I lived in a co-op girls dorm in college (Love Memorial Hall) where we had to cook meals for 7-8 girls for a whole week, 2-3 times per semester. That's really when my experiences began.
