We live in the little NE Texas town of Paris. My husband and I both were born and raised here. It is one of the hottest places in the world! My mother, sister and our daughter and her family all live on the same road as we do. We have full size and minature horses. I work as an office manager for a small local corporation. I do not have a favorite cookbook- I love them all. In fact I collect cookbooks. I have crates and crates of them. My passion is curling up in a cool, (remember I'm from Texas)darken,quiet room with a good book. I also love to spend time with my grandchildren. My biggest pet peeve is someone who drive slow in the fast lane and refuses to move over regardless of the traffic situation they are causing.
