I live in and am caretaker of a 100-year-old house in historic St. Charles, MO, and I love it. I have a 8 YO son, who keeps me very busy (I'm assistant Den leader in his Cub Scouts). I have three Maltese babies, and a Persian cat. Can you say FUR? I am a recipe and cookbook addict. DH (of three years) is a vegetarian. I'm honoring his choice in our house, serving only vegetarian meals. This is a challenge for me, and I'm always looking for recipes that he and my son will eat. I think I must be dreaming! I LOVE to bake, and am hoping I'll catch on with the new style of cooking.
