I am a wife and mother (to a beagle named Daisy) currently working as an administrative assistant to put the hub through a PhD. My grandpa likes to joke that I am earning my PhT - putting husband through. Besides the obvious enjoyment from cooking - and eating! - I love to read, snuggle my doggie, do crafts and hike. Our favorite vacation spot is Glacier National Park, though my dream vacation would be a trip to Japan. In a moment of weakness the hub promised to take me, and I intend to hold him to it! I have been using Recipezaar for the last two years and am so appreciative for this group of wonderful home cooks and chefs that share their recipes.
