This is my first entry on my blog. I have thought about doing this for some time and decided to just jump right in! I want this blog to be open to anyone! A little about myself - I was born and raised in the Washington, DC area. We moved to the Midwest shortly after 9/11 and have now been here over 9 years. I feel like I have experienced quite a lot in my 48 years on this earth. I have challenges just like everyone else, but food has always been a passion of mine. I cook and/or bake every day. I guess you could call it a hobby :) I plan on using this blog to connect with others out there that have challenging lives and just want to talk, be it about food or just about the kind of day you've had. I have an amazing stepson, so I have experience with that. I have a son with Autism, so I can speak to that. I have experienced the loss of both of my in-laws, so I can speak to that. I have aging parents, so I can speak to that. I have a teenage daughter, so I have experience with that. Through all of my life experiences, and believe me there are more, I have always found that I am happiest in the kitchen, preparing foods for the ones I love and care about. I will post some of my favorite recipes on this blog and I promise you they are not complicated! I feel that I am blessed to wake up each morning renewed and energized for what the day will bring. I hope you will come back and visit my blog again!
