About Me
I am a stay-at-home mom with three boys and one baby on the way. Freezer cooking is a time saver and now a hobby. I often TEAM UP and cook with my friends. I started a web site to explain 'how to' and provide encouragement. ( ) Being a wife and mom is very fulfilling. Good job to all who are investing their lives into raising the next generation.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with friends, pasta, asian, and sauces.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Preparing Thanksgiving Dinner with my mom and grandma.
My cooking triumphs
Team Up cooking method
My cooking tragedies
I'm always throwing things together. Sometimes it’s terrible and sometime it works out great.
