Welcome to dinner at the Franzen’s house. We love to eat, cook, travel, and try new foods. I’m a self taught cook and baker and food is my passion. I started cooking when my kids were babies and money was tight, and discovered that I loved it. My kids are now all teenagers, so thankfully I have hungry taste testers to try out whatever I cook. I especially love to try new or challenging recipes, or to make food I’m unfamiliar with and discover something new to love. I hope you enjoy this peek into my cooking and baking exploration and what we are eating for dinner tonight.
