I have always had a love for children and basically people. I was the youngest in a family of four by five years. Two sisters and a brother, I was the uh-oh caboose. I always wanted my parents to have siblings younger than me.. But that never happened, haha. I knew at a very young age that I was going to be a young mom with a bevy of kids. I didn't know how it was going to happen but I just knew in my heart that I would be surrounded with kids at my feet. God saw me to be fit to be the mother of six sons who I adore dearly. With the never-ending help from my love, we survived. Definitely not always easy. Now with four, wonderful daughter-in- loves and also grand dollies. Fast forward 30 years. I had no idea that my life would be so intertwined with hundreds if not pushing close to 1,000 kids, working in the kitchen, teaching life long skills surrounded by food. When FPK started so many years ago I had no idea what was to come. I didn't even know it would be a viable thing that people would want to be a part of. I didn't even know if I wanted to be a part of it. I mean I had an idea- and somehow I'm still figuring out how I got to where I am with what I we doing. FPK is going on the road, teaching on site to a local youth services community and will also soon be joining forces with the visually impaired, with so many details to be learned by me- including being blindfolded while cooking in the kitchen. What an incredible honor to be a part of so many lives in such a unique way.
A full class yesterday with all mom hands on deck to make it run smoothly- and their cleanup skills were amazing! Thank you ladies for helping me behind the scenes without even being asked. ♥️ "Thank you so much for an amazing experience! Nothing but absolute perfection today!" -( Except I forgot the whipped cream for the milkshakes and remembered when I went to make my ice cream sundae last night)
Inspired by the loves of my life. the hunger in my stomach and my SPONTANEOUS nature. DELICIOUS home-made food is my passion. The smiles on the faces that eat it and the hands that clean up the messes I make.
