I'm originally from Tennessee but moved to Louisiana when I married my husband. In addition to cooking I enjoy making quilts, sewing, reading, and gardening. I have a collection of 99 cookbooks but find the majority of my recipes here on the zaar. I like it that they are rated. I am the mother of three children. My son is now with the Lord. Until last year I homeschooled my two girls. They are now in public school.
