Born and raised in Oregon, I am a Scots-Irish girl at heart and temperment. I am the mother of 5 intelligent, beautiful souls. I love spending time with my husband and children. I love cooking and Food.com is my favorite place to find fun, new recipes. There's such a fantastic group of people from all over the world on this site. I love it! (I'm still in the habit of calling it RecipeZaar though.) My husband and kids are so good about eating the things I fix for them and they always thank me for each meal. We eat dinner together at the dining table every night and always have since they were babies. We love to laugh and talk about our day together. We spend a lot of family time together and are very close.
