About tinazeien

A little about me….. I’ve worked in healthcare a little over 18 years, 5 ½ of those years working with midwives. I love being involved with families that are expecting an addition to their family! Currently I am in school working towards getting my nursing degree so I can work in labor and delivery. From there I might go into OB ultrasonography. The whole pregnancy and child birth experience is so amazing I’m finding it hard to decide exactly what I want to be when I grow up! ☺ When I’m not working or putting my nose into text books, I spend as much time as I can with my daughters who are 14 & 18 years old (teenagers are quite an adventure!) I also enjoy spending time with friends and family. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by my weekly recipes, one of my biggest passions is to cook! I love spending my weekends finding new recipes to experiment with and playing hostess at my home. Most of the recipes I am going to try to post here are on the healthier side or geared towards vegetarians but I’ll also be sneaking in a few deserts here and there…. We all need a little decadence once in a while right?! I look forward to hearing if you have enjoyed these recipes as much as my family has! Bon Appétit ☺
