I am a mother of three, my husband is in the US Coast Guard. We move around a lot. I started cooking when I married my husband, I guess you can say I forced myself to. I wanted my family to eat homecook meals like how my parents raised me on. With allrecipes.com, it has been such a wonderful experience for me to try new recipes here that are incredibly good! In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my kids, reading historical fiction and KJV bible, outdoor activities and trying new recipes.
