When I was a kid my Dad and my Mom (who hates to cook)worked outside the home. My older sister hates to cook. So, I started cooking for our family at about 8 years old. I can't describe the pride I felt in having dinner on the table when everyone got home. I still do today for my husband and son. I love trying new recipes and tweak them until they suit our tastes. My husband and I have been together for 22 years. I have a wonderful, most days anyway, 10 year old son. I have an amazing 25 year old step-son. He shares my passion for cooking. Well, really, he loves to eat. He figured out the best way to eat was to cook for himself! I also have an amazing, hopefully soon to be daughter in law, who is also 25.
