About Me

My family - September 2011


I was born and raised in New Zealand, and moved to the States in my teens, where I eventually met and married the love of my life, Dave.  Together we have two beautiful boys Hayden & Elijah.   I work full time, and both my husband and I are heavily involved with ministry at our local church - but when I'm home - I love to cook for my family. Am I a gourmet chef?? NO! However, my kitchen is my favorite room in my house - and I love that despite whatever crazy things happen during the day, I can look forward to dinner time where we make it a point to sit down as a family and share a meal together.  

Having a husband who has a deep appreciation for food, and is NOT a picky eater AT ALL has made cooking a real joy for me and probably a passion over the years we've been married; I love all kinds of food, different ethnic dishes, comfort food, and good ol' American cuisine - and I love trying new things and creating my own recipes.  

I'll try anything except dill pickles... we don't get along. 

Besides cooking, I also love Jesus, scrapbooking, crafts, games, reading, music, and spending time with my family and friends.
