My passion is cooking, I have been baking and cooking since I was young. With 2 working parents it was essential.
I am trained as a Professional Cook, even have a cooking certificate, lol. The best education I ever got was going to cooking school.
I spent 3 years cooking in a gas station restaurant and all was well working there, but my heart still wanted to cook for kids. October 2008 I finally got the job I wanted. I been cooking for the kids for just over a year now and I love every day of it. The kids are great, some frustration, but it is all good, they are so smiley everyday, how could you not like work when you have a bunch of smiling faces looking at you.
Another good thing about my job is I get the summers off. I had a pretty good summer, I got to tend to my garden and get a bunch of stuff into the freezers, I was given a second freezer this summer. I have been planning on eating mainly out of the freezers so we can save some extra cash for Christmas.
I have plans on finding some nutrition courses that I can do online, just for dabbling in, it would sure help with cooking for the kids.
I live with my hubby and 3 kids (11,6,5), and one cat, who is part in-door, out-door.
I really want to get back into losing weight this school year, it has been 1 1/2 years since I lost about 15 pounds, I have maintained that loss though. I would still like to lose another 10 pounds.
I got my KitchenAid Professional HD in April 06, LOVE it.
My favorite cookbooks are Better Homes and Gardens, it was my first named cookbook when I was 18 and since I have bought 2 more, including the pink plaid one. And I have all three, even though my first one is all taped up I can't get myself to get rid of it.
I do a lot of preserving in the summer, some canning of fruits and jams, the freezing of veggies. Also dehydrating of fruits for snacks. This summer I got into OAMC cooking which has been saving my sanity.
