Janelle and I also happen to be BIRTHDAY TWINS! We were both born on August 26th (although I must admit I am much older lol!)! Isn’t it funny how God works?!!
Next Tuesday I will feature her first recipe but first here’s what Janelle has to say:
Oh, how I love to cook…just the thought of cooking gets me so excited! Some of my favorite memories have started by being in the kitchen preparing meals for a celebration, a person in need, or simple meals for my own family. I have also been blessed to share these memories with my children on chairs, pulled up to the kitchen counter, eager to help and learn.
Ephesians 2:10 says “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Cooking is one of my favorite ways to serve our Lord and I truly believe it is a gift he has given me to share with others.
I come from a long line of amazing cooks – not chefs – not professionals, just simple Italian ladies who insist on feeding every soul who walks through the door. Many of the recipes I will share with you are “Secret Family Recipes”-so bear with me, if you have ever known an Italian cook, we typically don’t like to measure. For the sake of this blog, I am willing to give up “pinches” and “handfuls” for teaspoons and cups.
I am a wife and mother of 3 young children. I hold a bachelor’s degree from Kent State University in Journalism and Mass Communication with an emphasis in Advertising. After being in the work force for a small while we became pregnant with our first child. I then decided to work from home and went to school to become a real estate appraiser. After baby # 2, I found out that working from home wasn’t as easy as it looked and became a full-time stay at home mom. My husband owns and manages a local Hedge Fund.
I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, attending and hosting bible studies, entertaining, reading Christian books and traveling. I am a people-person and am happiest when surrounded by others.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve you!
Having Janelle cover Tasty Tuesdays will free me up to write extra posts on the new Good Morning Girls site. Also, to be honest, cooking is one of my weaknesses, so I look forward to learning off of Janelle!
Although it was hard to admit that I needed help here on Women Living Well, I am so glad I opened up to Janelle and told her on a warm July night that I was overwhelmed
. She is an answer to prayer. So join me in welcoming Janelle for Tasty Tuesdays!
