About CreativeDecoMom

I love to decorate. I love to get a good bargain and love making things. I have to be different. I don't like to be put in a box or categorized in any way.

The One Where I Play Short Order Cook

Image via Wikipedia I hate cooking, except for larger groups of people. For parties, I always cook rather than cater, because I like to do it. I hate cooking for just my family though. None of the four of us can ever like just one thing, so I end up having to make four different […]
