I love cooking. It's always been one of my favorite hobbies. I grew up in Chicago, and my mom is a great cook. She taught me how to cook when I was a little girl. When I got married, my husband and I decided that we wanted to start a family. We both agreed that it would be best for me to stay home and raise our children. And, of course, cooking for them! I love trying new recipes and experimenting with different ingredients. I also enjoy shopping for new kitchen gadgets and dining out at new restaurants. I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to try and new places to eat.
