I am married with 2 grown sons, and I work as a proofreader. My Italian husband and mother-in-law love it when we try recipes from the 'Zaar, and it's fun for me just to browse and look for typos--I can't help it. My other hobbies are miniature needlework, dollhouses, reading, houseplants and eBay. Since I joined Recipezaar I am cooking more (and better) than ever before. Thanks for a wonderful site! Since you ask, my pet peeve is inexcusable spelling. Some of the postings on eBay are unbelievable--swade coat, bob wire, Pillsbury doe boy.
