Ultimate Block Part 2011


WOW, this is totally new to me! Thank Maranda (Jolts & Jollies) for leading me to this PARTY!

Well folks...I'll start at the beginning....

In August 1982.... ok, just kidding. Thats a little to far, don't ya think?

My name is Carolyn, and I married a Military man almost 8 years ago. We married and now have 2 beautiful red-headed children (Girl 6 and Boy 4). We currently live in Missouri, but that changes often. We have lived in 7 different states and 12 different places (I think...its hard to keep track...).


Kayla -- 6 (almost 7) years old

Jacob -- 5 years old
I haven't always loved to cook, it wasn't until my husband was deployed that its was just me and the kids (babies at the time) and I wanted to find something to put my creative juices into. So that was the beginning!

Now, I have been cooking for YEARS, and following blogs for YEARS, but not until recently I got inspired to start my own blog. My challenge is to find new ways to cook, with [sometimes very limited commissary] ingredients and still be healthy for the family. My kids aren't picky eaters since I exposed them to so many different foods.

I like cooking more than baking. Why? Because no one in this house will help me finish eating the things I bake, and now my butt is growing. =)

I love to review products, and try to do a few giveaways. Depends on the mood! I would love for you to follow--you never know what you might learn or want to try!

I'm also a big follower of God. So please so nasty comments or profanity. It would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there! I can relate -- I'm a redhead and an army brat! (My dad was an US Army captain).

Dropping by from the UBP. Love to find military wife/mom blogs -- the adventures are always so fun and familiar!

Thanks for stopping by Raising Knights! Don't let the title fool you, they are still very much works-in-progress. :) I never have to worry about my baked goods not getting eaten around here. There disappear quickly!
