Get to Know Me

I’m a boy mom! 4 boys to be exact including a set of twins!

While I’ve been cooking since I was a child and learned from my mother and grandmother, I am Not a photographer so while sometimes my photos are seriously amazing it’s sheer luck or I bribed a photography friend with food and wine to help me!! I learned to cook from my grandmother and my mother and have continued to enjoy cooking for my own family!

I love homeschooling and sharing our homeschooling adventures and themes! I’ve been homeschooling one or more of the boys for over 5 years now and we plan to continue!

I’m a foodie – I love new recipes, trying different foods, and experimenting in the kitchen! At the same time, I usually make kid-friendly things! Chaos & Wine has been featured on MSN as well as the Food Network!
