Hello, My name is Lynda. I live in New England. I am not a chef by any stretch, but I do have 6 kids I cook for and I am blessed to have a husband that will taste anything I put in-front of him! My family loves veggies, and I use my crock pot about once a week. I love this website because it reminds me of my favorite cook book that I bought from the church, full of thoes "tried and true" recipes. Nice to meet you!
