Hello! My name is Heidi, aka Lulu, and I started this blog in July of 2018. I have been married since 2006 to my husband, Kevin, and we have three children. J is our son who’s 12, H is our daughter who’s 9, and JT is our 4-year-old son. We also have a dog and a cat. I am a third grade teacher in Spokane, Washington (my hometown). My husband and I lived in the Phoenix area for seven years when we were first married.
My hobbies include cake decorating, baking, spending time with family, and writing (of course!). We also like to try out new restaurants in town and when we travel. My husband is a foodie so he is very adventurous with his taste buds!
I am featured on MSN and write for the blog, Food Drink Life. I share recipes, kitchen tips, and parenting advice on both platforms.
I love to try out recipes that were handed down from my grandmother and grandfather. Both were phenomenal cooks. I never met my grandma as she passed away ten years before I was born, but I was told that she had no sense of smell but could cook and bake like no one else. She helped teach women how to cook with electric stoves when they first came out. My grandpa made up or modified a lot of recipes and those have been passed down for our family to try.
As a parent and an educator, I enjoy researching and trying parenting techniques. Every kid and every parent is different so the same thing does not work for everyone. I will share both what has worked and what has not worked for me and my husband.
