Monica is a homemaker, a foodie, wine lover, animal lover, and loves to make crafts with her kids, there are 5 of them after all. I was a young child when my grandmother and my mom introduced me to the art of cooking. I was a little less than enthused. When I was young I looked forward to visiting my grandma for all her homemade goodies, but lacked the drive or will to take the time necessary to put in the effort to make such yummy homemade food. My mom was the main person in our home that cooked. She always made good food, but again I still was not interested in making much. I was 17 and I remember my mom taught me to make an Italian dish, shell pasta filled with manicotti stuffing. It was fun, but I didn’t see the need for going to such lengths just to make a dinner. By the time I was 25 and had my first kid…I had done a 180 degree turnaround and became a mad woman (in a good way) in the kitchen. From then on I was a “foodie”.
