About Me

I'm a thirty-something mom of 4 adorable boys ages 8,9,11 and 13. I refer to them as my "L's" since their names all begin with the letter "L."

I know, what were we thinking?

We are a homeschooling family and treat the boys' education as an atmosphere, a discipline, and a life.

I love Jesus, food, entertaining, all kinds of music, and creating anything with my hands. I used to make artificial topiaries sold them in nearby stores and on my website. The economy and other factors kind of closed up that avenue of my life.  I tend to have a lot of avenues.

My faith is really really important to me. It is my plumbline in an otherwise very crooked world.  It keeps me grounded and humble.

I was born in The Netherlands and moved to the US at the mere age of 5 (almost 6), was thrown into Kindergarten not speaking a word of English and in 3 months I was fluent!

I grew up in NJ, met my husband at age 12, and married at 21. I then worked as a Nurse, had two kids, moved to CT, had two more kids, and now we live in the beautiful countryside in PA.

I'm passionate about food and decided to share it with the locals by offering private catering for the business crowd with an emphasis on local, organic and wholegrain ingredients.  It has become a family business where-in I can teach my boys a practical hands-on approach to running a business. 

I'm now taking my quest a step further and blogging about the foods that I love to make and eat, hoping that it will spur you on to healthier nutrition and better eating habits!

Any Questions?

Enough about me,
The Lunch Lady
