Raised in Kansas, where eating starts with the word moo.... moved south to the land of cluck. I began cooking by reading a cookbook, cover to cover. My mother was not much help in the cooking arena, she hated it and didn't want me to get her kitchen dirty. So after I married, I was on my own - with my one cookbook. Now, years later, I really enjoy cooking, and think I'd like to do a cover to cover challenge.
