First and foremost I am a mom but I am also a girl who loves food. I enjoy food because it brings people together. My enthusiasm for food was handed down to me from my mother and almost everything I know about food and life I have learned from her. I live in Lakeview, Oregon with my two children Tate (aka Taters-16) and Taylea (aka Tales-14). Now you understand the blog name!! I used to work full time as a Title Officer at a local Title Company but in January of this year I purchased a local deli and am now a business owner. Love it!!
