I love trying out new recipes on my husband and my co-workers - most everything I make turns out pretty well, with a few notable exceptions that went straight into the trash! I have found some great recipes here! I'm a semi-professional belly dancer when I'm not at work at the doctors office or at home cooking (hence the screen name!). Married a guy who likes to cook, which I highly recommend to anyone looking for the perfect guy - make sure he can cook, and likes to! My favorite cookbook is a family cookbook that was put together for a family reunion - I have used it so many times it has stains and marks all over it - the sign of a good cookbook! My husband and I have three children - 1 cat: Brandy (age 13), and 3 dogs: Eagle (age 9), Dixie (age 11) and Mazie (age 5). We adore them and I have a tendency to spoil them!
