Introducing Myself

Hi everyone! My name is Rose (Fit & Healthy Mom). I am originally from Brazil and have been living in South of Florida for the past 10 years. I'm happily married and have two beautiful boys: Dylan 6 and Derek 3.
When I got married I didn't know how to cook at all, my husband was the one in charge of the kitchen. But when my son was born everything changed, I left my job to be a full time Mom. That's really when I started being interested in cooking. I cook almost everything organic; I want to make sure my kids have good eating habits early in their lives.
On the weekends, my husband usually grills seafood, like salmon, shrimp, mahi-mahi and of course my favorite halibut. My weekdays are busy with the kids, school, homework, t-ball, working out, etc; so I try to cook easy dishes.
I have to admit that I have learned a lot with and I really like to see the pictures and the comments that other reviewers have to share; some people are just so creative.

I love all your hobbies-those are mine, too! I'm trying hard to cook up a lot of the things I have in my pantry & freezer, so that is making me creative for now.

Hi Rose! Nice to meet you. I too try to cook organic and we normally stay away from processed food in my house, especially since I have food allergies.

Nice to meet you too, ChristinaB! I like your red snapper picture. It made me pay attention because I've never seem before to be wrapt in a banana leaf to cook.

Hi Rose, I'm Tracee. I jsut started working on cutting out processed foods and eating lower fat, low cholesterol recipes. I hope I will be able to call on you for questions. I always have many! Let me know if I can ever do anything for you. Welcome to AR!

Thanks Tracee! It's great when you start seeing the results of eating helthier, and it's not only about loosing weight, you feel great. I use to eat so much junk food a few years ago... I'm glad I finally changed my eating habits. :)

I agree that I learn a lot from AllRecipes too. I just started to really try cooking within this last year. I have always baked cakes, cookies and candies because I love it, but when it comes to real meals I have trouble. I don't eat meat, so it is more challenging for me to cook for my husband, but I have him show me how he would prefer his meat cooked. It takes some time and passion. Great to meet you!

Hey Rose! I like your blog site. Keep up the good work. Tudo bem? What city are you from in South Brazil? My wife is from Curitiba.
May 15, 2009 2:02 pm
Hi Lou! I'm from Florianopolis, I used to go very often to Curitiba because I have relatives there. I almost went to college there, but I ended up going to Blumenau instead. Nice to meet you!

We love salads with homemade salad dressing. We also love seafood, tex-mex and vegetarian dishes.
