I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful boys; Joshua (8years), Kaiden (5 years), and baby GIRL, Madalynn (19 months)! I also have two fur babies (cats); Kobee, AJ; we had to put our youngest cat Sly down Jan 2014. :(. I am also married to my best friend, Jeff and have been since April 2005. I love cooking, hate cleaning and will do whatever I can to get out of it! I love grilling and baking. I do most of the grilling at my house, and bake for almost a week straight at Christmas time! I can make or will attempt just about anything, though I rarely make brownies, my husband's are the best! Homemade breads are not my friend, so I am always working on bread baking.
As for recipe ideas (besides zaar) Cooking Light Cookbooks are my favorites. I love to make new meals and try new things; it is hard though because my husband is picky when it comes to veggies (and hates seafood); If it were up to him we would have baked-bread crumb chicken and white rice at least one meal a day! Over the past couple years with zaar, I have found tons of new recipes my family normally wouldn’t eat but have been happily surprised with new favorites.
I love to join in all of the tag games; I haven't been as present as I would like, but as soon as my Jeff is back from working in Ohio I will be back in full tagging mode!
Cooking is my hobby and passion, I always like to host the family get togethers and volunteer for the potluck dishes. Most of all though are my kids; being home all day with them is fun and challenging, but I wouldn’t trade it for any salary!!
Need to update since we moved...AGAIN! We are back in Arizona where we started; it is not Vegas, but at least it is near friends and family again... Back to the hot temperatues and desert landscape. Cooking will change yet again; LOTS of grilling to be had, and crockpot or no cook options in the dead-heat of summer. Also back to the big family/friend dinners. :)
My ‘famous’ recipes… my husband loves my Tater Tot Casserole which I learned from my mom, and my MIL loves my lasagna which is an updated version of my moms.
My favorite things are ICE CREAM, caramel, sushi, any seafood, Mexican food, PF Chang's, bagels, ham, comfort foods/casseroles, stuffing, potaotes, fresh soft bread, (carbs, carbs and more CARBS!) mushrooms, corn on the cob and so much more…
Things I do not like are: cilantro, soggy textures (bread pudding), green bell peppers, spicy foods (I am a wimp), chick peas, quinoa, and frozen green beans to name a few.
