I am a single mom to one son who is the best inspiration for me, ever. I have been cooking for years now but just recently started cooking "for real"! I love trying new recipes and making things from scratch. I also LOVE cooking for my family! I do have a oouple of stand-by recipes but on a day to day basis, we love trying new recipes and I visit Allrecipes daily. I am always trying to learn new tips and techniques, and try to include my 13 year old son whenever possible. I am learning that cooking is truly becoming my passion!
