I am a stay at home mom to an 8 year old boy and a 5 year old boy. I live in Florida and long to move back up north because I can't handle the heat and humidity. I spend just about all of my time with my kids and my husband. We love just about any outdoor activity. We also love to travel and recently started a goal of trying to bring our kids to all 50 states before they are out of high school so that they can experience all that this country has to offer.
As far as cooking...I never really cooked prior to the birth of my first son. I love to be able to provide homemade, wholesome meals for my family. I'm not a health-nut, but I try not to feed them processed foods if possible. A once in a while McDonald's treat is perfectly fine! At home, I seldom cook "kid foods." I have always fed my kids what my husband and I have for dinner. I think it worked for us, because now I have two boys who are not picky eaters and are willing try new things.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook elaborate dinners and to entertain guests. My family and I love to go to the local Japanese restaurant where we always order the hibachi steak. Now we love to recreate it at home! I don't have a hibachi grill, so obviously I have to do it a bit different, but it still tastes just as good, if not better. We love Japanese night at home! Other than that, I really like making any kind of Mexican dish.
