Originally from PA, transplated to Miami for 27 years and up to Tallahassee since 1999. I type medical transcripts parttime. Have 3 granddaughters and all in college. I care for a disabled husband and love my Poogle and 2 cats. I was fortunate enough through the years to have had access to Mennonite recipes and a mother from the mid west. I'm always looking for ways to alter those recipes so they have fewer calories without sacrificing the taste. I'll cook from scratch if it's worth it.
