I am in my early 40's. I have two boys, 19 (who is in collage)and 4, I know it sounds crazy. Took me 16 years to get pregnate after many doctors told me I couldn't get pregnate. After the shock/deniel/5 preg. tests wore off, we settled down with a new boy. He has really changed all of our lives I can't even imagine life with out him now. Its so different being older, when I was young with my first boy everything was such a worry about being a good parent doing the right thing, I could go on and on, now it's wonderful to just enjoy him. He keeps me young and makes me smile. He sails with us and goes out into the woods with me while I am pursueing my hobbie, macro photos of wild flowers. I am a professional cook have been for 20 yours. I just started a new job, it's the first time in a long time I am not in charge, it's refreshing. Opens me up to do more creating.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking just about anything but do love mexican. I also love Christmas as I try alot of new recipes to give as gifts. I have given Homemade sausages, different flavors of pasties, and many kinds of candies. I like to cook with friends it brings us together to have fun and make memories in the kitchen.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year over the holidays we make egg nog from an old recipe my mother got from her mother. We make a big batch with the kids and sit around the fireplace and sip our nog. We also go to my brothers and sister in laws and have Thanksgiving and Christmas morning brunch. Everyone brings a dish to pass. My husband when we where date couldn't believe all of the food.
