Ah, the about page...the page which is my least favorite but where you discover a bit about the person behind the blog....so who I am? 

 My name is Florence and I was born and raised in France. However, I have called the United States home for a long time...1987. I have been married to the love of my life since 1993. We are parents to 10 children ~ 9 by birth, one by adoption. Nine living, and one  now in heaven.

 I am blessed to be a stay-at-home mom and have been so since the birth of our first child in 1994.  In 2007,  friend Alisha and I decided to start a web-site with zero experience - and it showed. Despite our many mistakes, our site was a success and we went one to make another one together and as well as separately.

 Who I Am Not! 

I am not a professional cook nor do I profess to be. I am just a wife, mother, friend, daughter, who enjoys cooking and sometimes just has to whether I like it or not...my family does like to eat.

I did not learn to cook as a child but rather "fell" into it as an adult. I certainly was raised around "food" since - in France - meal time is quite a social event and a big part of the French culture.

 What I do not like!

  • Dirty dishes
  • Canned vegetables
  • TV dinners
  • Microwaves
  • Aluminum anything
  • Kitchen gadgets that do not work or are useless and take up space
  • Burned meals
  • Grumpy people
  • People who hide behind a computer and mistreat others because they feel "safe"
  • Any many other things ;)
