I firmly believe everything tastes better when you had nothing to do with the preparation or clean up. I used to have a few favorite cookbooks, but this site has easily replaced them....I love the ease of searching for exactly what I need and the feature of seeing what others have rated the particular recipe. I'm a mother to 2 kids. I stay at home and provide childcare so I can be with them during the day. For fun I enjoy reading, shopping & movies, as well as getting together with friends & family for games & cards. LOVE to travel when the $ is available. BIG into Jimmy Buffett.
