I'm retired since August 2007 after 20 years from a library in central Wisconsin. I guess you could say my hobby is cooking. My husband has even gained weight since I am home more. I love trying new recipes and just started smoking food in my new smoker. So far I have only made salmon and turkey. Both turned out good. We have two grown children and two granddaughters. We also love camping and try to go often. My husband loves fishing and hunting so we have alot of fish and venison and the freezer. I love Zaar and visit the site almost every day. I really love it when I get a good review on one of my recipes. I just wish members would alow zaar mail fo I could thank them for the review.
