Married since 1999 to an amazing man. Together we have 4 children, 3 boys and one girl. I haved lived in Manitoba, New Zealand, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. I am a stay at home mom, and also work part-time for a local county program for low-income families. My husband is a school teacher and we live on tight budget. Therefore, cooking at home is a way of life! McDonald's? Not for our young family!
My favorite things to cook
Don't like to bake things twice unless it's amazing! Love to try to new recipes. My kids are always wondering what mom is making for supper today! I especially like to cook ethnic foods like Thai and original Mexican recipes. I grew up on Mennonite food so I still crave those staples at times.
My cooking tragedies
Making grilled cheese sandwiches with the butter on the outside of the bread instead of the inside... while pregnant.
Making my first pie when I was first married... and not baking the crust... for guests (one being my mother-in-law who is an amazing pie chef!!)
