I live in Southeast Michigan with my beautiful daughter, (because my son just moved out on his own...I'm always worried he's not eating good food! LOL! my two dogs and kitty. (update, my son has moved back home, so i don't worry about him so much anymore. And we have added two bunnies to our menagerie)I have loved to cook forever and I especially like to try new things. Foods from different countries and ingredients that are hard to find only get me started salivating! Help me, I think I have a problem! I have been a member of this site for many years, but just used it as a resource because my home computer was always the kids computer, and I could only log on at work and quickly download the recipe I wanted to try. Now things have changed, I have my own little laptop in my newly remodeled kitchen. I have a SO(remodeled my kitchen for me) who also loves to cook and I feel like I have found nirvana! I can't stay away from this site and my burners are always warm! Another update! The wonderful man who was my significant other and remodeled my kitchen for me is now my husband! That is a picture from our reception at the top.
