I am a mother to two beautiful girls, Paxton (8) and Addison (4). I have been married 9 years to my loving husband, Tristan. My husband was an active Marine, until 2001. I was a working mother until we had our youngest in 2003. i stayed home until 2006. I am now working full-time so my husband can finish school. I never really had to work within a budget before, and now i do. i also have to think of meals that are easy and not so time consuming. I actually have been doing most of my cooking on the weekends, and add a side here and there through out the week. my girls love to help me, and i encourage them to do so.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes, and cookies. I also love to make interesting things to wow my friends and family. I love crock-pot recipes and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
