I live in Nova Scotia Canada. I work in a fertilizer blend plant. I am quite active physically, I bicycle, walk, backpack, swim,camp etc. My favorite cookbook is one that has been passed down through the generations in my family. The entire thing is hand written and amended and annotated by all who have used it. I would not part with this Family treasure trove of recipes if my life depended on it! I am passionate about Family, Friends and food in that order. And am just NUTS for my lovely Wife Emilia! Pet peeve: Politicians. 'Nuff said 'bout that!
