I am the mother of 3 boys (ages 14,12,8) who have appetites the size of Texas. They are not always open to my experimenting in the kitchen, but my husband always welcomes a new recipe. I find cooking and baking very relaxing. I love to take a published recipe and try new things with it. Being an accountant pays my bills, but my passion is volunteering at my local animal shelter. I make homemade dog biscuits for my 4 legged friends.
