Hi, everyone! Thanks for looking at my page, my recipes & for checking out this wonderful photo of the two most important persons in my life (OK, one is a beagle but we've raised him since he was six weeks old so he's a part of our little family!). The other is my sexy, younger husband (OK, only by four years) & we've been married for almost seven years. I am still awed that he chose to marry me considering I had little to no domestic skills when we first married! He now enjoys my food & it's a great source of joy/acheivement to plan, cook & serve him meals every night. But ugh, I am NOT a "doing the dishes" woman, so I have learned to "clean as I cook!" I owe A LOT to this website!!!! I have come such a long way since I first started realizing that raw chicken turns white when you cook it!! Cooking is now a huge passion of mine. I take such joy in creating my own recipes or getting creative with recipes from this website. Striving for satisfaction/perfection with food can be a hard task but I love that feeling of getting a recipe just "right." I am a recent vegetarian but my hubby is not, so I get to cook on both sides of the fence! It's a kind of delicate balancing act but I do think I'm getting better at it as I go.
