I love to cook...surprise! I really enjoy cooking for small dinner parties and family. I do everything from scratch and prepare a huge varity of cusines. We have a fabulous herb garden year round and vegetables during growing season. My old man Cavalier passed away on July 15, 2009. Maxamillioln was a pure love, and I am so happy that I gave him a forever home for his last few years. So, I now have one Cavalier, My Toby. In addition to cooking and gardening, I love making quilts, tho I'm just awful at it 'cause I can't cut straight or sew straight. I also enjoy sewing for my home. I LOVE Recipezaar and the wonderful community of folks here. Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!
