I like to refer to myself as a Mis-Placed NYer. I have been living here in Northern VA for 12 years now and go back to NY whenever I can. I work as a Human Resources Analyst. I love where I work, and the people there are wonderful. They also love to eat which is perfect since I love cooking. We have potlucks all the time. I'm always on here looking for something interesting to make. I have posted some recipies as well that I hope (if you try them) you enjoy. I live with my husband and our spoiled kitty Harley. I also enjoy reading, singing, theater and going for long drives especially in warm weather when the convertible goes down and the wind is in my hair. It's hard to write about yourself LOL I can be a bit loud and love to laugh. I make my own greeting cards which I find very rewarding. I have tattoos and am what one would call a BBW. I have no problem with that, and if others do well thenit's their loss for judging me without knowing me. Don't you hate when people do that? Oh well..drop a line if you like. I love meeting others and love trading ideas around.
