Homemaking and homeschooling near Charlotte, NC. 4 pets, 3 kids, 1 hubby. My favorite cookbook is "Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking" by Marcella Hazan or "Southern Living - 30 years of Recipes". Been a fairly healthy eater since my childhood (I was the only kid who hated Wonder Bread - we only ate whole wheat), but am trying to go even more organic and/or homemade. Hoping to start collecting recipes to allow me to do this.
