Valentines Day message to....

The ones I love!!

This post is dedicated to the "foodie husbands and wives and children  and our amazing friends" out there... that motivate, encourage, cheer, roll their eyes (but smile anyway), taste and critique our creations!!!

So your a foodie.  What is the first thing you do??  CREATE RECIPES!!!  If your inspired by someones creations, then you tweak and fiddle and make them your own...
Whom do you experiment on???? YOUR FAMILY AND FREINDS!!!!

These amazing loving cheerleaders that you have in your life everyday!!

To my husband:   My biggest supporter!!!  He's my rock, my best friend, my true love, my protector, my grounder and my "balloon breaker" but in a nice way!!
He will try my creations... and depending on his face, I can tell if it's a winner or not!!! LOL
He's my cheerleader, he cheers me on no matter what.... I can't tell you how many times he tells me in ernest; "baby, you have the passion, pursue your dream, I'm behind you all the way", "don't stop cooking okay" ??   :-)
Without him I would have MELT DOWNS!!!  Say it isn't so... say it isn't just "me" that has a meltdown when a recipe or picture come out not as you want... you throw your cooking spoon or spatula or tongues down, TEAR OFF YOUR APRON and state "your never cooking again"!!!! 
*looking around the room*, "maybe it is just me????  ;-)

To my best friend and my ENTIRE OTHER BEST HALF... I LOVE YOU!!!!  I wouldn't be a quarter of what I am now without your support, encourgement and love!!!

To my children: You guys ROCK!!!!  I can't thank you enough, for trying my creations, encouraging me, rooting for me, cheering  for me (very loudly I might say during cooking competitions), giving me your opinion (sometimes I just don't want them okay...no really, I mean seriously??? Seriously????  Alas I digress ;-) ), waiting until I take a pic to eat, and asking if you have taken the pic TO EAT!!!
Your support has meant more to me than you'll ever know!!  Your just simple "thumbs up" when I'm up on stage and your big smile, knowing mommy is melting and her hands are shaking and you can see by her face she's totally lost it.... YOU KNOW WHAT????  That meant the WORLD TO ME!!!!
I love you soooooooooooooooooo much!!!!!

To my friends:   You guys are amazing!!!  You motivate, you give me the thumbs up, you give me high fives, you vote for a recipe without a pic... "hello McCfly"????  You can't see it, you haven't tried it, but because you are who you are... your gonna support me no matter what....
TRUE FRIENDS!!!  Whether your real life, whether your online... goodness and kindness comes in so many way... I am TOTALLY BLESSED with good friends!!!!  I love you all!!!!

Readers:  I can't thank you enough!!!  My page views alone indicate that you guys are just amazing!!!  I love you guys too!!!  Thank you so very much for your encouragement and support!!!
I can tell you, that not so far in the distant future I will be having amazing giveaways from a few sites that have already sponsored me!!!  Their gifts are amazing!!!  I cannot WAIT to share them with you!!!

    Your my teacher, my mentor, my ultimate roll model!!!!

    Let's make those chips "kettle" shall we???

  3. I absolutely believe that FOOD = LOVE. I took a cooking class and the instructor said no one cooks with the intention of creating something bad -- it's what we do when we care.

    I was thinking along the same lines of you when I spent three hours making dinner for friends on Saturday -- I believe we are lucky when we have food to cook with and friends and family to share it with.

  4. Thanks Didi. I can feel the love you have for your family.
