Cooking Classy

 I'm a blessed wife and mother with a huge love of cooking!  I'm no professional chef, photographer or web page designer, but I love food and that's what matters =)!  Food is a big part of my life.  My family often jokes around about me saying "food is my life" when I was only about 8 years old.  Food is always on my mind.  I'm always trying to think up the next great meal or dessert.  I'd have to say I'm a greater fan of desserts than the actual meal so you may find more desserts on my blog versus entrees.  Life is meant to be enjoyed and good food is a key factor in that =).
