I am the wife of Mike and the homeschooling mom of 4 precious children. I am also the food editor for our local newspaper and all around community and church cook. It's a good thing I find chopping veggies so relaxing. This blog was inspired by my daughter who asked me to complile every single different dish I cooked for one year and put them in a cookbook for her. She wants the completed volume to be her 11th birthday present. How could I turn that down?
