I am a stay at home mother of 4 amazing little girls. They are my reason for my obsession with cooking. They love helping mommy cook pretty much everything and are great at it.

I collect everything and anything to do with lighthouses. We spend a large chunk of our summer going to yard sales in seach of them :)

My favorite things to cook
