I live in small town of Hamilton, AL, about 100 miles northwest of Birmingham and 45 miles due east of Tupelo, MS. My husband and I have one four year old son and I have a five year old brother (my parents adopted last year). We both love to cook and try new recipes so I was thrilled to find this site. We are both 911 dispatchers and are blessed with a full kitchen at work. This is great when you live in a small town because there are very few lunch choices other than fast food burgers. I love growing fresh vegetables in my garden. My husband and I enjoy making different kinds of pickles and cooking with fresh herbs.
