I live in Birmingham, AL and have my whole life. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world and have been for 12 years. We do not have children but are very involved in our church. God has been so good to us and he is the true love of my life. I love to cook and find new recipes to try. Most of my time at home is spent in the kitchen just piddling around when I'm not cooking. Problem is that I have to really watch my weight and trying new recipes all the time does not help in that area. I work part time for a mortgage company. Love to collect cookbooks. My favorites are Ina Garten because the recipes are great and not quite so difficult as some others. My husband and I love to travel and see new places.
