About this Cook
I grew up with my father being the main cook in the home since he worked as a chef. I like to think I learned a little from him and the rest I kind of make up as I go along, but that in NO WAY means I know what I'm doing :-) I'm a married mother of 3 who cooks dinner 7 days a week and all 3 meals on weekends, but I also work 5 days a week so I LOVE anything that can be whipped up fairly quickly without too much hassle. We rarely eat out (usually packing leftovers for lunch) so when I do get to buy my meal I like to make it something special that I wouldn't make at home..
My favorite things to cook
I have a major sweet tooth so I love to bake and learn new recipes for things I see in bakeries, but never thought I could make at home. I love it when it turns out not to be as tough as it looks! I also love Mexican food, but I'll try anything once that looks delicious, with the exception of Sea Food (blah)
