I'm a mother of two growing, school aged kids. My son, Hayden, is 9 and my daughter, Heather, is 8. When I moved out of my parents home at age 17 (9 years ago), I could barely reheat leftovers from our local Chinese takeout joint. Since then, I have learned some tricks of the trade and a few recipes that I've tweaked to make them, in my opinion, better and also give them a little touch of me. I'm no Paula Dean ya'll, but I can fry me one heck of a chicken breast. Lol. I try to have fun in the kitchen, especially now that my baby girl is getting old enough to really help out in there and learn proper technique. My mother never taught any of her daughters to cook. When I moved out at 17, it was to get married. My new husband was baffled that the only thing I'd ever made was a bowl of cereal. So he started the basic course on cooking. We lived with his mother for two reasons: 1- Because we had just had a newborn baby and our second one was on the way and we were broke and 2- So I could learn how to cook all of his favorite dishes exactly the way his mother cooked them. Fast forward to today. I'm divorced from him, engaged to the greatest man in the world that would gladly eat charred toast and say it was yummy just so he wouldn't hurt my feelings. He is an amazing catch. All my recipes that I will eventually post on here are test by my kids. When I say kid tested mother approved, I'm talkin about two very picky kids that have almost polar opposite taste buds (examples: one eats hamburger, the other hot dog; one like ketchup, the other mustard; one loves peas, the other corn, etc). I'm still learning and experimenting with things. The main thing I have yet to master is soup, but I'm sure, like everything else, I'll eventually get the hang of it and spend the next 6 months tweaking it until every last bite and slurp is perfect. I suppose that's enough about me and my cooking history. As I progress with my skills, I'll add blurbs on here as needed. Hope you have a grand day and always remember, there is always room for pie.
