I am a wife, mother, "marmy" and a nurse and I love being all of them. I'm a true tennesse girl trapped in a body born and raised in Flordia.<<< I moved to Tennessee about 4 and 1/2 years ago and can't figure why anyone would want to live anywhere else. I love Gospel Music and Food!!! I guess my real dream would be to sing all day, cook all night and start all over again the next day!! This is the most amazing site and I am impressed by all the people I have "met" here. LOL Foodnetwork has nothing on any of these people....all of you are great cooks!! Thanks so much for sharing your recipes and ideas...they are wonderful. My pet peeves are recipes that are so complicated and require items they never ever heard of in the local grocery or local specialty food stores and that I can't even order off the net. I work in a Long Term Care facility...and have for 24 years. Another pet peeve is that you can make really good food, nutritional food at a reasonable cost. When I am 90 years old I hope if I must be at the local nrsg. home the dietary dept. will serve my food and allow me good choices, good food and dignity in the way that it is served!I have never participated in any "swaps" but would love to. I have a "zillion" cookbooks and would gladly swap!!
