My name is Cat. Some call me Catherine but those I love call me cat (or the ones I really love, momma!) I'm a 25 year old stay at home wife and homeschooling mother. We live in a somewhat modest home in the pocono mountains, Pennsylvania. Living here allows us the opportunity to share nature with the boys in a peaceful country environment. I love to cook and make home goods of my own including but not limited to canning and preserving: Relishes, jams, chutneys, home brewing: meads (honey wine), wines and beer. I particularly enjoy expirimenting with baking and cooking. I often play host to numerous kitchen disasters, and I can not say that I am not sad when things do not go according to plan. I've ruined plenty of food and burned myself numerous times but I still truly appreciate the "task" of learning.
