Why Did You Begin Blogging:

I had so many great recipes that I wanted to share with the world, but I needed an outlet and blogging was it. I brought my children along in my journey, and "Mommy's Kitchen" was born.

My mother taught me to cook at a very, very young age and I wanted to do the same for my children. I want my readers to know the kitchen isn't just for cooking but also a place to have fun together. Cooking, baking, preparing meals as a family and making a bunch of memories along the way. Memories I hope one day my children will share with their children. It's all about cooking in Mommy's Kitchen.

Being a stay-at-home mother, you really need to pinch your pennies and watch your budget. Eating out is an expense we just cannot afford. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on great food. You can prepare great home style cooking yourself. My site has a great resources of recipes that are sure to please any family. If you are just starting out on your cooking journey, no problem. My site has step-by-step recipes in full photographic tutorial so, you see, anyone can learn to cook. You just have to give it a try.

Before Becoming a Stay-at-Home Mom:

I worked in the medical office background for hospitals and medical practices.

Most Rewarding Part of Being a SAHM:

Just knowing that I get to be home raising my children. Not someone else or a daycare center doing it for me.

I can look back later and know that I got the privilege to spend time with my children that some other mothers are not able to do. I truly am blessed and lucky.

I have been a working mother as well with my oldest son. I missed out on all his firsts. He crawled, walked, talked and shared everything with someone else, not me. It was so heartbreaking.

I told myself if I have more children I want to stay home with them and get to see all those wonderful milestones. I am so happy I got to have that opportunity.

Biggest Challenge You Face as a SAHM:

You cannot call in sick, no days offs, no set hours. Mom works 24/7.

You have to wear a lot of different hats at times and that is so challenging. I don't call myself a stay-at-home mom. I am a Domestic Engineer! We can do it all.

It's a bit scary at times. Just knowing as a parent you are responsible for making your child into a self-sufficient adult, I hope I am doing everything right. It is such a big but rewarding responsibility.

Best Advice for Other Stay-at-Home Moms:

Make it fun. Try not to see it as work but as a special opportunity that you have with your children.

If you are positive, there are so many rewards. Not to mention endless loads of hugs and kisses. One day you will look back and be thankful for all that you have done with your children during that special time.
