I can give the basics and even a few little extras, but the best way to get to know about me is to get to know me. So e-mail me (joisigers @ aim.com) or connect with me on Twitter (http://twitter.com/JoiTaniaSigers). That way, I get to know you too!
My name is Joi (pronounced Joy). People see my name and wonder if I’m from “an exotic race” – the answer’s no, unless being a Kentuckian counts. Born in Kentucky, raised in Kentucky, live in Kentucky – as the Montgomery Gentry song says, here is “where I keep all my yesterdays.” My todays are also here, and my tomorrows see no reason to go anywhere else.
The spelling is simply a result of a great grandmother being ahead of her time. She told my mom she thought it’d be a fun idea to spell it with an i, and my mom always liked the word fun, so there you have it.
You should know that my family is my life. I love them more than anyone should be allowed to love others. I’m a wife to a wonderful man who is also my best friend, mother of three daughters (more about them in a minute) who walk on two legs and mother of two daughters who walk on four. Some would call them my cats, I call them my babies. So, now the secret’s out of the bag, I’m a crazy cat lady! Rounding out my immediate family are two sons-in-law who are, literally, like sons I never had.
I’m a Christian, as a result of God’s love and goodness and His Son’s love and bravery. Thanks be to Both of Them that I didn’t have to do anything to earn my way into Heaven. All I had to do was believe. That I most certainly can do!
I came up with the idea for Buttermilk Press.com and its blog, Get Cooking as a way to preserve my favorite recipes and cooking tips for my three beautiful daughters (Emily, Brittany, and Stephany). Over the years I’ve met so many wonderful and colorful people through Get Cooking that I know this food blog was one of my best ideas ever.
Because I’ve always thought of this site/blog as a dedication to my daughters, who I love more than my next breath, I always strive to make this the best food and recipe blog/site that it possibly can be. I work hard to provide recipes, cooking tips, product reviews, and food news and do all that I can to stay on my toes.
I will not recommend anything to YOU that I don’t recommend to the three girls below.
Thank you for being here, you honor me with your visit.
Emily, Brittany, and Stephany
