Family: Married mother with a two-year old, and a baby on the way. I also have two very quirky labs, who are convinced they are humans.
Background: I am the oldest of four children. I grew up in Georgia. After graduating high school, I moved to South Carolina for college. I have a degree in Psychology. My senior year, I was involved in a little accident, and burnt most of my right arm. I decided to change career paths, and just over a year later found myself in North Carolina in nursing school. Hubby & I got married during the middle of my nursing schooling, and moved back to S.C. once I graduated. A few years, a few new jobs, a house, and a baby later, we packed it all up and moved to G.A.
Food: After reading the other ladies bio, I'm a little embarrassed to fill this out! We love food in our house. Hubby & I are big foodies. The little man is going through a picky phase, but generally eats everything, and almost adult portions. My meal planning strategy has been a work in progress since nursing school. During school, we transitioned to a lot of "freezer" meals, and I downsized some OAMC (once-a-month-cooking) meals to fit our life styles. I also fell in love with my crock pot. This same trend somewhat continued off-and-on over the next few years, as life got busier and we became more budget savvy. We don't follow a strict diet, though we eat much better than we used to thanks to the little man. We are always up for trying new meals. I'm a foodgawker and pinterest addict!
Greatest food challenge: (1) Veggies. I'm always looking for a way to incorporate more of them. I know we don't eat enough. Honestly, I don't really love veggies. With the exception of green beans, and sweet potatoes, I find them a necessary evil. They are growing on me though. (2) Carbs. I really love carbs. Paula Deen (pre-diabetes) & I could be good friends. (3) Pregnancy Cravings. I have a problem - I am obsessed with pumpkin. Like pumpkin spice latte with pumpkin bread muffins obsessed.
Hobbies & Interests: I love to bake. I never get the time anymore, but I am hoping to change that. I'm a huge reader also, and a pretty big computer nerd.
Favorite Recipes: I'm going to have to leave this one blank. My idea of favorite foods, change quickly with my pregnancy cravings. Currently, you can bet on just about anything with pumpkin.
