my story

I am a busy, busy woman. I am married with two grown daughters, and I work full-time as a public safety dispatcher. (Yes, it's stressful, but I love it.) I also have a part-time bookkeeping business, and other extra-curricular activities like writing a blog, bowling, reading, watching television and movies, and spending time with my family.

So, why did I sign up as an independent consultant for Tastefully Simple? BECAUSE I SIMPLY LOVE THE FOOD!

Could I use a few bucks along the way? Sure.

More importantly, I want to share the wonderful simplicity of preparing gourmet-quality food in your own kitchen ... almost short-order fast.

True story:

I ordered the Absolutely Almond Pound Cake Mix on my first order from a co-worker's party. (I hadn't even attended the party!) I prepared it for an open house I was holding to attract potential roommates, because I wanted my home to smell warm and welcoming. I preheated the oven, because I do know the basics of baking. All I needed was water, butter and my mix. Simple!

My then 17-year-old daughter was assisting me in cleaning said oven and wiped down the backsplash. You guessed it, she turned down the temperature. I didn't realize it until 20 minutes after I had the cake in the oven. (Whoops.) I turned the temperature back up.

After another 20 minutes, we smelled smoke. Well ... I had poured the cake into a too-small pan and it was overflowing down onto the oven floor. I took the cake out, scraped up the oven floor and put the cake back in.

Let me say that again: I TOOK THE CAKE OUT, scraped up the oven floor (and, yes, that took a few minutes), AND PUT THE CAKE BACK IN ... a BIG no-no on baked goods, right? Right. That poor cake had now gone through three temperature changes.

When it "looked done" (because by now I had absolutely no time reference to go by), I took it out. Cooled it down. Cut it up. Tasted it.

I love the food. I love the company. I want to share that with you and your friends. Simple? Yes, Tastefully Simple!
