I am a wife and stay at home mom. In an effort to "spread our wings"  and persue a healthier lifestyle, we moved our family to a 40 acre farm 3 years ago.  I love fresh vegetables, but gardening is difficult in our area because of the local wildlife, so we are members of a local CSA which is awesome. We do raise free range chickens. We usually have  anywhere between 70-100 girls, and we sell our wholesome, farm fresh eggs to a local grocery and a local steakhouse. We are also Members of Kentucky Proud.  My family enjoys eating, & I enjoy cooking, so we're all happy when I'm in the kitchen!  I recently remodeled my kitchen and my husband surprised me with a 48" gas Professional Series Viking with convection.  Yes, my husband really loves it when I cook!

My favorite foods are: Steak, Macaroni and Cheese, Pasta of any kind, potato soup, tortilla soup, split pea soup, vegetable soup, grilled pizza, veggie salads, & Birthday Cake with icing.

I fried my first egg by myself, start to finish, when I was 3 years old.

As a side note:  I'm thinking about experimenting with a juicer this winter.

We love this! I used Chi Chi's mild chunky salsa, Campbells chicken broth, a rotisserie chicken, and Kroger's Nice n Cheesy Queso Blanco cheese. Fantabulous when served with grilled cheese sandwiches! — serialpurrs.org 2/14/2012

The queso blanco cheese comes in a brick and is labeled "nice & cheesy" but it's like the generic version of Velveeta. Melt the rest of the brick to use as a cheese dip. — Kriston 1/30/2012

A family favorite! We all love this recipe! Tonight I used a grated Mexican cheese blend instead of grated cheddar. Fantabulous! — srenea 1/19/2012

My family of 4 really liked this recipe. I added a half can of peas as a layer before mashed potatoes, & next time I will add a can of diced tomatoes. I will fix it again. :-) — dianarose40 1/18/2012

My whole family loves potato soup. ... We may even be potato soup snobs! This is by far the best, and the fastest potato soup I've ever made. The whole family raved! This will go in the "family favorites" recipe box!!! 3/28/2010
