I am an army brat who has made my home in Missouri with my husband and my 4 children who range in age from 4 months to 10 years. My mom is a wonderful cook and I love to eat so after I left home I had to learn to cook. I am still not as good as she is, but I love to try new recipes as well as cook some old favorites. I love recipes from Southern Living and I love to collect cook books. I consult the zaar almost every night when I am trying to decide what to make for dinner, and so far I have not been let down!
