I live in Sanford, NC with my husband Ross, son Madden and our pets Sully and Luna, and Hazel. I love to spend time with friends and family, be outside, be with children and read. Like my Mom, one of my favorite hobbies has always been cooking. Now it is even more fun since Ross and I cook together. It is one of our favorite pastimes, and we have discovered some great recipes (and some not so great, too). My sister Kara, who I lived with for my first 18 years of life and then again for a few years recently, is a vegetarian. I like to seek out lots of good veggie recipes to treat her. Ross’ sister Lara is also a vegetarian so we have double the reason to search for healthier, vegetarian friendly meals. Now that I’m a Mom, I’ve had a lot of fun doing what I never thought I would do – making all of Madden’s baby food. Each time I make something that tastes really good, I have a burning desire to share the recipe with others. I thought this would be a great way to get some tasty ideas out there for everyone to enjoy!
